The views of women and men on terrorism and the punishment of terrorists: a preliminary study among midwestern college students
A survey designed to measure attitudes on crime, punishment, and terrorism was administered using a systematic, convenience sampling design to 321 undergraduate students at two Midwestern public universities. Women and men had significantly different attitudes toward crime in general, with men tending to have more punitive attitudes toward criminals. The gender gap narrowed considerably when asked about the rights and punishments of terrorist suspects, and in some cases reversed entirely with women having more punitive attitudes than men.
