Wanted: Ministerial Champion for Women in the Criminal Justice System
There are lots of measures we need this new government to take to reduce the women’s prison population and decrease the damage that prison does in women’s lives. As an initial step we are urging David Cameron and Nick Clegg to appoint a Ministerial Champion for Women in the Criminal Justice System. The previous Ministerial Champion provided visible leadership, helped make sure that women in the criminal justice system were on the agenda and was instrumental in securing funding for projects working to keep women out of prison.
Join us in writing to the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister to urge them to take this simple first step in the early days of their government.
