The Howard League has a history of arranging well-attended, high impact party conference meetings that tackle the most relevant topics of the day. This year’s meeting will discuss women and the criminal justice. Women are a minority in the criminal justice system, accounting for approximately 5 per cent of the prison population and 15 per cent of those supervised in the community. The reasons that they end up involved in the criminal justice system are often very different to their male counterparts and their needs tend to be more complex. Too many women end up with a criminal record and in the penal system on a community penalty or in prison unnecessarily.
- Frances Crook, Chief Executive, Howard League for Penal Reform (Chair);
- Victoria Prentis MP for Banbury, Justice Select Committee, APPG for Women in the Penal System;
- Superintendent Stan Gilmour, Head of Protecting Vulnerable People, Thames Valley Police.
