Predatory Behavior

One of the most interesting features about ICONIC predatory behavior is that this behavior is seen far more often in men than in women. There are many women ICONS throughout the world, but we rarely hear of them engaging in this type of behavior. And while women engage in a wide variety of violent behaviors, their involvement in predatory behavior and predatory aggression is so disproportionately less than men. What accounts for this difference? Violence involving ICON intimidation, predatory behavior or predatory aggression are areas of criminal behavior we need to know more about, and Violence and Gender is exactly the journal positioned to support and publish this type of research.
