The article discusses underlying causes of sex-related crimes committed by young women. Sex-related crimes committed by young women have aroused people's increasing concern. The question is what are the cases of such moral degeneration. The author offers his personal views based on the findings of investigations made over the last few years. In studying the underlying causes for women committing sexual crimes, one should also investigate the whole chain of phenomena and their cause-and-effect relationships. Only in this way can one find out the causes of crimes and prevent their reoccurrence. The article looks into the factors contributing to sexual offenses committed by young women, with an emphasis on the internal and external causes. Marxism holds that internal causes are the bases and external causes the conditions, and that external causes become operative through internal causes. Internal causes play a leading role in premeditated crime, because such crime is an intentional act, not the result of accidental external causes. Hence one will begin by studying the internal causes for young women to commit sex-related crimes.
