“Sadiq Khan announces £500,000 plan to keep women out of prison”

But not a dime to keep men out of prison, even though they are incarcerated and sentenced at rates much higher than women :

“Mayor Sadiq Khan today announced £500,000 is to be spent on improving services to support women at risk of re-offending after serving prison sentences.

The money will go to charities and other services in 10 London boroughs to provide specialist help on domestic and sexual abuse, trauma counselling, employment, parenting and housing.

About 30,000 women are arrested each year in London, making up a third of all offenders sentenced at court, and around 20 per cent of these are re-offenders.”
