University of Essex, (2005) Witchcraft and Masculinities in the Early Modern World;

Table 2 shows that 77.36% of female witches were working independently38 and only 4.4% of female witches worked with men. In comparison, 44.44% of male witches worked independently and 44.44% had female accomplices. Could these percentages be interpreted that contemporary people viewed English witchcraft as a crime that was mainly perpetrated by women working alone and if a witch was male then he would possibly have a (female) accomplice? If this was the case then this evidence would bear weight to an argument that witchcraft in England was viewed as a female crime and by women's ability to "manipulate" males into joining their "craft" then witchcraft was a very strong form of female power.
