The Limits of Leniency: An investigation into the effect of transgressing normative gender identities on perceptions of female offenders

As part of my dissertation research project on the effect of transgressing normative gender roles on the perceptions of female offenders I am using a questionnaire. You will be asked to give responses to a series of statements, firstly concerning specific scenarios detailing offences. The offences that will be discussed are shoplifting, sexual activity with a minor and assault. The descriptions are not graphic but I am aware that discussion about crime may be distressing. Secondly, you will be asked to respond to a series of statements regarding views about women and their role in society. This is being conducted as part of a sociology course. The questionnaire will take about 10 minutes to complete. If you require any further information about this research project, please contact me on or my supervisor, Professor Loraine Gelsthorpe, on
