1922 The First Female Criminal Court Judge Says Men Will Not Hold Female Criminals Responsible

In 1922 Judge Florence E. Allen, the first female criminal court judge says that male jurors very seldom hold women accountable for their misdeeds in the courtroom and that as a result there needs to be more female jurors. This is a woman saying this not a man just keep that in mind:

“Men have always sit on juries and men instinctively shrink from holding women strictly accountable for their misdeeds. Now that women sit on juries I expect the percentage of convictions in cases of women to be greater. Women are more clever than men in arousing sympathy. I had on a woman, a hardened criminal, stage a terrific fainting spell in my courtroom after the jury found her guilty.

It took four men to carry her to jail. She continued having these spell, so long that I had to defer pronouncing sentence. Finally I sent her word that the longer she acted so, the longer she would be in jail. Within a few moments she sent up word that, she would be good and received her sentence meekly, with no trace of feeling”,5358173&dq=men+have+always+sit+on+juries+and+men+instinctively+shrink+from+holding+women+strictly+accountable&hl=en

This is the evil oppressive male dominated society they told us existed back then.
