Research Paper on Europeans Women’s Crime and Punishment history. The paper
should be about 7 pages, doubled space, 12-point font, Times New Roman. Use APA
style manual for citations and references.

about women in Europe and my main argument is why women were punished unfairly
and how laws have changed since then until now.
