Wonder women and macho men | Criminology and Economic Theory | Scoop.it
Good taste is not how tabloids sell copies in any country, but it is hard to imagine a British red top describing a female politician quite so crudely. The treatment of Ms Fernández in Noticias points to a Latin American paradox. Women have made great progress towards equality with men, especially in schools, workplaces and politics. But social attitudes have changed more slowly. Women’s ambitions are often belittled; hostility towards them is common. Raw statistics tell a story of female advancement; machista culture has yet to catch up.

Attempted murder on the Paris express

Attempted murder on the Paris express | Criminology and Economic Theory | Scoop.it
The French government has been uncharacteristically cautious about calling this an act of terrorism. Yet Bernard Cazeneuve, the French interior minister, confirmed on August 22nd that the case has been transferred to the judicial police’s anti-terrorist unit. He also said that the suspect, who can initially be detained for 96 hours under French law, is thought to be a 26-year-old Moroccan citizen already known to the French counter-terrorism authorities. Mr Cazeneuve said intelligence services in Spain, where the suspect lived in 2014 before moving to Belgium, had tipped off the French about his “belonging to a radical Islamist movement”. One French newspaper suggested that he had tried to reach Syria earlier this year.
