As incarceration rates for men drop in some states, efforts to de-carcerate jails and prisons have largely left women behind—and it’s women who are leading the charge to right these wrongs. Women have become the fastest-growing segment of the incarcerated population. Although men’s jail populations actually fell 9 percent from 2008 to 2018, women’s jail populations grew 15 percent. Women's incarceration rates are also climbing at double the rate of men’s in state prisons across the country. It’s clear that de-carceration efforts are leaving women behind.
