The U.S. is one of the top incarcerators of women in the world,
making women the fastest growing criminal justice population. In the past four
decades, the number of women incarcerated in U.S. jails and prisons increased

There is an overwhelming difference in the way men and women are treated in the
prison system, and after release.
