In her book <italic>When She Was Bad: How Women Get Away With Murder </italic>, Patricia Pearson describes the tendency of society to only ascribe men with aggression. When women show aggression, it is either denied, or excused by victimizing them. Using this theory, it is interesting to look at Daniel Defoe's <italic>Moll Flanders</italic> (1722), Mary Elizabeth Braddon's <italic> Lady Audley's Secret</italic> (1861), and Margaret Atwood's <italic>Alias Grace</italic> (1996). These three novels have been written over a period of three hundred years and they show that during this time not much has changed for women. Each of the three female criminals is not seen as the individual person that she is, but it is attempted to force her into the ideal image of a woman. Since the women who do not conform to society's rules pose a threat to the patriarchy, they need to be controlled
