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 email@example.com or my supervisor, Professor Loraine Gelsthorpe, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
