CareerEdit

Prior to becoming a researcher, Coy worked for several years with sexually exploited girls and women. She has published a number of articles and book chapters on the sex industry, including links between local authority care and sexual exploitation, women's experiences of selling sex and men's motivations for buying sex. More recently Coy has focused on developing a gendered analysis of sexualised popular culture, including how this might be addressed in popular approaches and everyday practice with young people.[2]
