Abstract

This study points out the presence of women in the criminal organizations. Where is a woman’s place in the mafia or similar crimes? The present research analyses the evolution in the role of women from end of 80’s till the last judgements by Italian Courts, where in the perpetrator, the co-perpetrator was for the first time found to be a woman. The essay on women and the local mafia seek to answer different questions from a wide range of academic disciplines and trace the portrait of women tied to organized crime in Italy and especially in Bari, where there are exclusive criminal organizations involving women. This evolution pulls back the code of silence and shines a light on the dark image of women entangled in organized crime, as a mediator, co-perpetrator, boss at the top of organised criminal group. The surprising first hand account of mafia women in Bari, reveal women in power, also in relation to the art. 416 bis of Italian criminal code.
