This report found that resourcing for work with and for incarcerated women and girls has failed to adequately address the needs and capacities of these groups, including by feminist and women’s rights funders. The findings present a compelling case for why work with and for women and girls impacted by the criminal justice system urgently needs increased resources and more effective funding.

This report draws from the survey responses of a total of 34 organisations working with and for incarcerated women and girls. The survey was developed taking into account the objectives of this report, the experience of those involved, and the mandate of Women Beyond Walls. It was also informed by consultations with experts and volunteers.
