Women in the U.S. experience a starkly different criminal justice system than men do, but data on their experiences is difficult to find and put into context. We fill this gap in the data with a rich visual snapshot of how many women are locked up in the U.S., where, and why. Alongside our detailed "big picture" visualization, this 2018 update to our 2017 report on women's incarceration features a close-up view of women in local jails.
If our work is new to you, you might want to check out our 2017-2018 annual report.
