It is well documented that women offenders have complex needs and that sending them to prison can have devastating effects on not only the women but also their families. In this seminar Debra, Amy and Jackie discussed the challenges of managing women offenders and the work being done both in government and in the community to improve interventions to prevent re-offending and where possible divert women away from prison.
