Women behind bars
Friday 25 September 2020, 12.30pm to 1.30pm BST
This webinar will explore some of the barriers faced by women stuck within the criminal justice system: barriers which lead some to find themselves in a revolving door of prison admissions, others to lose their homes and their children, and many to fail in attempts to overturn unfair convictions and unfair sentences.
Join Professor Loraine Gelsthrope, Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justine and Director of the Institue of Criminology, Professor Nicky Padfield, Professor of Criminal and Penal Justice at the Law Faculty and Naima Sakande, a criminal defence investigator at APPEAL. Together they share their work and vast experience of studying and working with women in the criminal justice system, from sentencing, parole and recall to the barriers that deter women from appealing in court.
Following the discussion, there will be a live audience Q&A.
