Women, Murder and Justice examines from a feminist perspective, the legal treatment of women who kill their partners in England. Through an exploration of Crown Prosecution Service files, an in-depth comparative examination of the circumstances in which women and men kill is provided. The book highlights gender differences in the act of murder, the criminal justice system's negotiation of these differences, and the development of feminist strategies to alter the legal structure for women who kill.
