Would recognizing corporate crime legally solve the problem of women's victimization by corporations?
This question is based on Annotation on a Framework for Analysis and on the Introduction to the Szockyj and Fox text, pp. 3 - 32.
Click on the letter below which best reflects an answer based on the preparatory reading for this seminar discussion:
A. No, recognizing the crimes legally wouldn't solve the problem because the corporations have much greater legal access than do the victims.
B. Yes, recognizing the crimes legally would solve the problem because then the State could prosecute and women victims wouldn't have to make out a case on their own.
C. No, recognizing the crimes legally wouldn't solve the problem because there is a deeper problem in women's naive faith that the society will protect them.
D. Yes, recognizing the crimes would solve the problem because then corporate criminals would be deterred from engaging in such crimes.
E. A and C.

Figurine by Rudiger Appel. Notice that you can see three effects in the animation. Either the Variation on the Kandinsky figurine appears to turn in a clockwise direction, or in a counterclockwise direction, or it appears to open and close. Can you see all three effects? Try. Fascinated? Link to Appel's site and then link to the background he provides. Scroll down until you find a link to background.
