Tags are what WordPress calls is keywords. I attach a small number of tags to every post to help people navigate between content with the same keywords. Tags may be people (David Gauke say), organisations (The Howard League, Revolving Doors Agency), themes (women offenders, homelessness) or specific items (heroin, cocaine, ROTL). If you’re looking to research a particular issue, they can be invaluable.
The Centre for Criminal Appeals will highlight inappropriate and disproportionate sentencing of women who have committed minor, non-violent crimes and/or civil offences that can also lead to imprisonment, such as the non-payment of council tax.
The multiple needs faced by women in contact with the criminal justice system mean that it is the responsibility of a range of agencies to work together for a more effective approach. PCCs can provide the leadership to ensure a co-ordinated approach to women’s offending.
It is provisionally estimated that the total world prison population has increased by around 20% since 2000, compared with the
approximately 50% increase in the number of imprisoned women and girls.
It is surprising that in 2015, there is almost no British research of sufficient high quality to inform best practice in reducing women’s offending. There is a particular need to develop an effective evidence base around what works in helping women to desist from violent crime.
