The crime and criminality of women seem to be “gendered” in history. Academic research on this topic has placed its spotlight on male committed offenses giving rise to the misconception that crime and criminality is male-centered. It is as if women do not have the predisposition to commit a crime, more so, that the criminality of women is trivial. Certainly infringements of the law were committed by women, however, these remain “invisible” in the long history of crime and criminality. This paper endeavors to remove the proverbial cloak of invisibility on women’s offenses in Spanish colonial Philippines. Within the ambit of the framework of “empire-colonial government-indigenous/ethnic state” this paper will attempt to survey women’s offenses by exploring the crimes, whether civil or criminal in nature, perpetrated under the colonial rule, noting well the laws that were in place for Spain’s colonies. Navigating through the dockets of asuntos criminales of the colonial judicial system, this paper will delve into the nature of the crimes committed and investigate the dynamics of the indigenous/ethnic offense and offender versus the colonial law that castigates.
