Across the UK, around 12,000 women are imprisoned each year.
Although women are less than 5% of those in prison, they account for over 19% of self harm incidents, an indication of the traumatic impact of imprisonment on many.
Women entering prison are more likely to have been imprisoned for non-violent offences.
Women in prison are highly likely to be victims as well as offenders. Over half the women in prison report having suffered domestic violence with 53% of women reporting having experienced emotional, physical or sexual abuse as a child.
Many of them have dependent children – an estimated 17,000 children are separated from their mothers by imprisonment every year.
