Description

Punished for Surviving: Where is the Justice for Women of Color?

Women of color are significantly overrepresented in the criminal justice system. Women of color and low income women are disproportionately affected by mandatory arrest policies for domestic violence.

  • Black women represent 30% of all incarcerated women in the U.S, although they represent 13% of the female population generally.
  • Hispanic women represent 16% of incarcerated women, although they make up only 11% of all women in the U.S.
  • Many women in prison have experienced physical or sexual trauma at the hands of men.
  • 92% of all women in California prisons had been “battered and abused” in their lifetimes
