Coercion and Women Co-Offenders

Charlotte Barlow

Policy Press

This chapter introduces the concept of coercion and the existing field of research on coercion and female offenders, and it sets out the structure of the research within the book. The author will be using a case study approach to examine four women co-offenders, all of which have been co-accused with a man with whom they are in an intimate relationship. The use of case and court file documents allows the author to examine both the legal and media representations of the women and their cases. The chapter concludes by laying out the structure of the remainder of the book.
