Women Offenders in Community Corrections
Presenter: Jen Wright & Becky Pogatchnik
Broadcast Date: 01/19/2005

Women represent an increasing proportion of offenders under community corrections supervision. Women probationers increased from 18 percent in 1990 to 23 percent in 2003; women parolees increased from 8 percent to 13 percent during the same time period. Concurrent to the increasing number of women offenders in community corrections, research is producing information about issues affecting women offenders – issues that can significantly influence women’s potential for success while under the jurisdiction of community corrections. This presentation will provide corrections administrators, managers, supervisors, and line staff with information on what has been learned about gender responsiveness for women offenders and best methods for applying that information to the women on community corrections supervision.
