Kim will discuss the current trends in the increase criminalization and imprisonment of women, especially those who are poor, racialized, victimized and have mental health issues. Within the context of current legislative and political trends, she will further elucidate some of the issues that contribute to the over classification and limited programming and treatment options which contribute to women being the fastest growing prison population in Canada and internationally.
