    This chapter provides an overview and discussion of women and criminal justice. In particular it focuses on the Corston Report (2007) which directed attention to the imprisonment of vulnerable women in England and Wales. It outlines the scope and intentions of Corston and the hoped-for level of change the Report proposed, particularly in relation to radical alternatives to custody for women offenders. The chapter places this review within its wider context and considers key developments that followed. Whilst Corston opened up the way for some initiatives and community interventions, this chapter critically reviews the complexities of well-intentioned developments and argues that whilst it endeavoured to ‘kick-start’ a new approach to women in the criminal justice system, it failed to bring about the hoped for level of change it promised.
