I am familiar with the Corsten report. And in summery it states it's belief that women require a different kind of imprisonment (centres) focussing more on rehabilitation to females. What it does not address is whether the same approach would also work with males to lower reoffending rates. It's also very much based on preventing female suicides, something which is largely being ignored in male prisons Again, what is being argued here is to whether females who have committed serious offences should be spared jail if a male committed an identical offence in similar circumstances. Rich people have a far lower reoffending rate. Should they also be given preferential treatment as a custodial sentence would have a detrimental effect on their home life and would not effect the reoffending outcome.
