Sutherland (Sutherland, Cressey, and Luckenbill 1960) and William Foote Whyte (1955), was also a factor in this context. Adopting an ethnographic approach to group deviance, Sutherland departed from traditional theories and interpreted crime as a learned behavior. Although he insisted that his theory explained all crime, it did not examine women’s criminality in detail. The definitive representative of the Chicago School’s male bias is Whyte. His book Street Corner Society (1955) inaugurated a “romantic” turn in the sociological study of the “delinquent male hero” (Heidensohn 1985: 132).
His work can be said to carry the seeds, not only of sexism, but also class bias, which is shown in his dependence on middle-class norms to define different types of behaviors, including criminal activity; thus ignoring working-class women. ” This genre instead criticizes the traditional politics of the nuclear family. Rather than deeming the female criminal as “unadjusted,” the criminal femmes fatales in the narratives of hardboiled crime fiction are presented as the consequence of the criminal women’s 22 Criminal Femmes Fatales in American Hardboiled Crime Fiction integration in the underworld as, for example, in Hammett’s Dinah Brand of the Red Harvest (1929) who works on a par with the gangsters in the novel.
Furthermore, female delinquency is essentially conflated with and reduced to sexual delinquency: his case studies of “unadjusted girls” primarily comprise accounts of “promiscuity and adultery” rather than crime. As a remedy for this malaise, Thomas advocates middle-class values, especially family values to impose moral standards. The way he associates the allegedly non-criminal “nature” of women with traditional female roles implies that any move towards a breaking of traditional gender roles ought to be suppressed in order to contain female criminality.
