Incarcerated Women More Likely to Be in Jails
November 15, 2018 | Grantee Publications | Criminal Justice

The Prison Policy Initiative (PPI) has released an update of its Women’s Whole Pie report that visually represents all the women incarcerated in the American criminal justice system. Compared to the general incarcerated population, women are more likely to be held in local jails, and one in four incarcerated women have not had a trial, which suggests policy solutions are needed. PPI calls for more dedicated study of women populations in the criminal justice system, especially with an eye to rates and impacts of jail incarceration and consequences for families and communities.
