La delincuencia femenina

María del Mar Lorenzo Moledo

Universidad de Santiago de Compostela

En este trabajo abordamos el tema de las mujeres delincuentes, y más concretamente de las mujeres internas en centros penitenciarios. La delincuencia femenina, que ha merecido poca atención desde la investigación social y educativa, es un problema social que va adquiriendo mayor magnitud y que en los últimos año ha experimentado cambios no sólo a nivel cuantitativo, sino también cualitativo. Todo ello plantea la necesidad de intervenir educativamente sobre esta población conforme a determinados supuestos, y considerando los límites o condicionantes para la acción educativa que, en este caso, se derivan de la naturaleza del contexto y de las características de la población. Pero las dificultades que debe sortear el trabajo educativo en este medio, no deben conformar y justificar la imposibilidad de intervenir eficazmente con este colectivo, buena prueba de ello ha sido la implementación exitosa en un módulo de mujeres de un centro penitenciario de Galicia del Programa de Competencia Psicosocial.

Female delinquency. In this article we apprach the topic of female delinquent, and more concretely, that of women who are imprisonment. Female delinquency, who has deserved little attention from social and educative investigation, is a social problem who is adquiring more importance and that during the last years has experienced changes not only at an quantitative level but also at an qualitative level. All this together states the necessity of an educative intervention over this population according to determined parameters and taking into account the limits or conditonants for educative action. These can be derived from the nature of context and from the characteristics of the population. But the difficulties that educative task must avoid in this field, mustn’t conform and justify the impossibility of and efficient intervention with this colective, the proof of this has been the successful implementation of the program of Psychosocial Competence in a female department of a Galician prison.
