Transforming lives: reducing women’s imprisonment


Perhaps there needs to be a study/enquiry into what women are being imprisoned for, and a comparison made with male imprisonment.  There can be no justification for women being treated more harshly than men by the legal system. There is a need to know if this is happening and why. Differential applications of penalties against different sections of the population is hardly acceptable in this day of equal rights.
