Dr Siobhan Weare


Research Overview

Dr Weare's research interests are focused in the areas of criminal law and criminal justice. She is currently exploring the issue of 'forced-to-penetrate' cases, including the experiences of male victims, and the legal, criminal justice, and societal responses to this form of sexual offending. Siobhan is also interested in the socio-legal responses to women who commit serious offences more broadly, including homicide and sexual violence. More generally, Dr Weare is also interested in violence and gender, domestic violence, sexual offences, and criminal legal and gender theory.
