WOMEN: CRIMINALS OR SURVIVORS?

The number of women in prison grew 800% in the past 30 years. This discussion will focus on the unique criminal justice pathways of women and girls, which are disproportionately paved by histories of sexual/domestic abuse and trauma; and ways that trauma-informed, evidence-based practices can more effectively and humanely address their challenges.
