    Hi Laura,

    It is very interesting. There is, shocking for me that the translation in Spanish from profesión like Judgue or lawyer could be masculine or femenino ( El juez la juez el abogado la abogada) but the defendant are only males. Maybe in your country there is not femenino defendant or they are named in other way ( assailant woman, burglar female or so ?

    Thanks
