Getting justice right for women – Podcast
Late last year, Associate Director, Elena Campbell, lead author, Catherine Caruana and Lived Experience Adviser, Dorothy Armstrong shared key insights from our research and from the lived reality of women navigating a justice system designed primarily for men.
Don’t have time to read the CIJ’s 2021 issues paper, Leaving custody behind: Foundations for safer communities & gender-informed criminal justice systems? Listen to our discussion with Lisa Abbott of the Living Free project on the drivers of the escalating female imprisonment rate and reform options to turn around this destructive trajectory.
The Living Free Project works with girls reported missing and women in contact with the justice system. The team are taking to the airwaves to promote important discussion around the need to do things differently for vulnerable girls and women in the justice system. From the importance of connection and therapeutic jurisprudence through to a deeper dive into sector reform and service system re-design the team will speak with a range of professionals and the girls and women who are impacted by these systems.
