2020 by 2020

Women in Prison is leading the 2020 Ambition to reduce the women’s prison population to 2,020 (or fewer) by 2020 - this is roughly half the current number of women in prison. WIP and our partners have been working in this sector for over 30 years we know this ambition can be achieved and how to achieve it, we just need the political will and courage to take this forward. Please join our campaign to help make this happen!
