Is this craziness?
Lawmakers in Great Britian are actually considering proposing a new policy that would almost effectively close down women’s prisons. This proposed policy is discussed here, and the Women’s Justice Task Force explains the justification of this idea by assuming that women criminals are more likely to be victims themselves of some type of injustice, and less violent, so this policy would be justified in their minds. In fact judges in Great Britian are already encouraged to give women more lenient sentences over men for the same crimes.
Is this a sensible policy or not in your opinion?
