Having in mind the quantity of consequences that war crimes are leaving to their victims and society as a whole and the need for their prevention, it is very important to fully understand their nature. Data on the personality of the perpetrator can play an important role in accomplishing this goal. Starting with the examination of the place of women in the world of crime, the authors open the floor for a discussion about of the role of women in the perpetration of war crimes. Finally, they test their conceptual findings with actual cases, through a case study of the armed conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina (1992-1995).
