If men were treated as leniently as women in sentencing terms, five out of six men in British prisons wouldn’t be there

The media storm over Philip Davies’s perfectly reasonable speech at the conference rumbles on, much of it very silly, for example this from Cosmopolitan, a magazine well-known for its insightful coverage of gender-related matters. Much of the media coverage implicitly or explicitly dismisses the possibility that a justice gender gap exists, so it seems a good a time as any to republish a piece by William Collins, UK Prisoners – The Genders Compared. His remarkable website, which covers a large range of issues, is here.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
