Women and Criminal Justice: From the Corston Report to Transforming Rehabilitation

Jo Brayford (Editor), John Deering (Editor), Jill Annison (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


    This book focuses on developments since the publication in 2007 of the Corston Report into women and criminal justice. While some of its recommendations were accepted by government, actual policy has restricted the scale and scope of change.

    The challenges of working with women in the current climate of change and uncertainty are also explored, seeking to translate lessons from good practice to policy development and recommending future directions resulting from the coalition government’s Transforming Rehabilitation plans. This timely analysis engages with wide-ranging considerations for policy makers, providers and practitioners of services and interventions for women who offend, and questions whether women should be treated differently in the criminal justice system.
