This concluding chapter discusses the contribution to knowledge provided by this book and considers the ways in which a feminist, critical approach to understanding coercion may lead to a more holistic criminological understanding of some co-offending women’s pathways into crime. It particularly focuses on the issues with dichotomising agency and coercion and viewing victims and offenders as a binary concept when considering the experiences of coerced women. The chapter provides a number of recommendations for criminology, particularly considering the ways in which a more nuanced appreciation of co-offending women’s experiences could be gained.

Keywords:   criminology, agency, feminist critical approach, coercion, pathways into crime, women
