Research into Female Sexual Offenders

A Special Issue by the Journal of Sexual Aggression


Research into sexual offenders has traditionally focused on the role of men, with the prevalence of female offenders under-recognised and under-researched. The Journalof Sexual Aggression has published a special issue on ‘Female Sexual Offenders’ which aims to expand knowledge around the subject and is organized around topics related to the prevalence of sexually abusive behaviour in youth, the characteristics of convicted adult female sexual offenders, the criminal justice response to female sexual offenders, including their assessment, and finally societal views of female sexual offenders. The papers in this special issue originate from Europe, New Zealand and the United States.

In recognition of the forthcoming 30th Annual Research and Treatment Conference sponsored by the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers, readers of ‘The Forum’ can read for free the Editorial and an article ‘Female sex offenders: Specialists, generalists and once-only offenders’ by Miriam Wijkman, Catrien Bijleveld and Jan Hendriks until the 31st August 2011.

The Journal of Sexual Aggression is an international, interdisciplinary publication for the dissemination of research findings and the development of theory, policy and practice regarding sexual aggression in all its forms.
