I really enjoyed reading your book chapter! Your readability and flow of ideas works well. It's a great idea to add your comment at the end that people should understand this topic extends much further than you were able to discuss. I have done mine on motivation to support the death penalty and found my self looking up women currently on death row for murder in the USA. I think it would be very interesting indeed to find out what their motivations were as their crimes and victims are varied. Really awesome work! --U3125721 (discuss • contribs) 08:50, 18 October 2019 (UTC)U3125721

Hey! This is such an interesting topic, looks like you're doing a great job with it. I have always wondered why people are far more shocked by women who kill as opposed to men who kill. A couple of reasons for this could be: cultural learning, in that we are exposed to more incidences of men who kill and therefore become somewhat desensitised to it. Another reason could be that we associate women with more caring and nurturing characteristics, and are therefore shocked when our biases are contradicted with such violent acts. Anyway, your chapter looks great! Maybe adding a section looking at maternal filicide could be super interesting. Ill link a study I thought could be useful for you: https://canberra.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/fulldisplay?docid=elsevier_sdoi_10_1016_j_ijlp_2007_03_003&context=PC&vid=61ARL_CNB:61ARL_CNB&lang=en&search_scope=MyInst_and_CI&adaptor=Primo%20Central&tab=Everything&query=any,contains,maternal%20filicide&offset=0
Minor spelling and grammatical errors were corrected. For example, some sentences were missing commas. This chapter is a really interesting read. I particularly enjoy the different case studies which provide a practical application of what had been discussed in the previous paragraph. --Briannathefox (discuss • contribs) 01:03, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
They may not be relevant or they may be overlap but I found two previous book chapters on topics you brought up that may be useful to add to the see also section. I'll provide the links below https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Motivation_and_emotion/Book/2018/Familicide_motivation https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Motivation_and_emotion/Book/2015/Filicide_motivation--Haylzw (discuss • contribs) 09:12, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
Hey, I've just read through your chapter and it is really great so far, after a little bit of research i found a journal article (which i have linked) that studied female serial killers and found similarities in demographics and mental health etc, it was mentioned that a majority of female serial killers a caucasian who marry people and have kids and that less than half of them have experienced mental illness. Thought it might be interesting to touch on in ypur chapter :)--U3160677 (discuss • contribs) 03:21, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
Such an interesting topic, your chapter looks greatǃ all I have to offer is a couple of external links - podcasts that I know about which tie in perfectly with your topic. The why women kill podcast and women who kill podcast - Thanks u3114966 (social contrib. 20th October)
Hey, I find your topic very interesting. The difference between male and female crime is astounding. It amazes me how the two sexes differ. check out: Vitopoulos, N. A., Peterson-Badali, M., & Skilling, T. A. (2012). The relationship between matching service to criminogenic need and recidivism in male and female youth: Examining the RNR principles in practice. Criminal Justice and Behavior, 39(8), 1025-1041. --Beth Matthews (discuss • contribs) 12:31, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
