I’ll start off with General Strain theory, it states that strain can be caused by failure to achieve positively valued stimuli, the loss of positively valued stimuli, and presentation of negative stimuli. In Compelled to Crime, the African American battered women were overwhelmed with strain, in response they acted out by committing an array of different crimes. The reasoning behind this could be because of their low levels of social support. The African American battered women did not have a lot of support; they were most of the time cut off from their families and friends. Another example of how strain applies to these women can be seen in Agnew’s writings when he said “Data suggest that child abuse and neglect negative school experiences, chronic unemployment, and residence in deprived communities are important causes sate anger and that such anger explains much of the effective of strains on crime.” (Agnew, Chp.
Book Review – Lakota Woman By Mary Crow Dog Since the American government passed laws to push for progress and to help ‘civilise’ the Native American peoples, Indians have suffered as they can no longer practice their cultural customs or speak their native languages and yet are considered to be less than human in the eyes of the White Americans. In the book “Lakota Woman” by Mary Crow Dog these White American ethnocentric views are highlighted from experiences in Crow Dog’s life and are compared to the degree of ethnocentrism displayed by the Indians to keep their culture in defiance of the White Americans plans for them. Growing up on an Indian reservation Mary Crow Dog experienced the ethnocentrism
First claiming to be sick and pregnant, Celia eventually full on rebelled and killed her aging master, Robert Newsom. Through numerous interrogations and court hearings, Celia was eventually found guilty of homicide despite her continual sexual demands from Newsom. Celia’s case and slavery in general resulted in domestic battles between proslavery and antislavery settlers in the western states.

These women were seen as both the most challenging to fit within a "social matrix organized around the family unit" as well as an economic burden by their neighbors. Women labeled "witches" were seen as wanters and takers driven by self interests and lacked the ability to reciprocate favors to neighbors no fortunate then themselves. Resentment from these neighbors paved the path for witches to be seen as a "locus of dangerous envy." These stigmas place on women are commonly regarded to have dissipated thought out time, but certain attitudes seemed from the persecution of these women created long lasting damage toward femininity and consequences remain visible even in
Their presence was a manifestation of wrongdoing in the family and the entire clan. In some extreme cases of discrimination, the victims of Albinism have been killed, and their body parts used for witchcraft particularly as it happens in the Republic of Tanzania.

She replied, ‘You mean other Indian women have been raped?’ When I said yes, she asked, ‘Well, why don’t we ever talk about it?’ (Smith 1999:280). This alone shows that the Native American woman think they are alone in their circumstances.
