about

Women who kill rupture our assumptions about what a woman is. This book explores different socio-cultural understandings of women who commit, or are accused, of murder. A wide range of cases are discussed in order to highlight the ways in which such women have been perceived, and how such cases reflect important social and cultural shifts.
LIZZIE SEAL is Lecturer in Criminology at Durham University, UK. She has written on perceptions of women accused of murder and public views of the death penalty in England and Wales.
