L'invisibilisation de la délinquance des filles en France à travers l'institutionnalisation de son enfermement XIXème siècle

Abstract : The purpose of this article is to highlight the widespread closure in which is found the crime of girls in France which is currently the subject of differential judicial treatment. To do this, the historical return has imposed itself as understanding the institutional logics that are behind this observation of judicial and social injustice. The socio-historical and political trajectory of the delinquency of girls in France reveals the existence of an institutional confinement, via a sexual treatment of the delinquency, as well as a conventual confinement, having for objective to evacuate the delinquency of the girls of the public scene, enclosing it behind the walls of the convents. Thus cloistered the delinquency of girls, invisible, is silenced and no longer comes to trouble the French society that still struggles to accept this delinquency juvenile feminine. The delinquency of girls, and more broadly female, comes to undermine the social image of "the woman" and comes to jeopardize its essential role in the reproduction of the species. The survival of the differential treatment of the delinquency of the girls testifies to the still significant difficulty of the French society to grant delinquency to the feminine, but also to consider "the woman" like the equal of "the man". The delinquency of girls is therefore particularly evocative of the still massive confinement of girls and women in well-defined social roles, most often in connection with motherhood.
