Just 4,000 of the UK’s 84,000 prison population are women.
The Prison Reform Trust (PRT) is a registered charity, and its Director since 1999 has been Juliet Lyon CBE. As we’d expect, the majority of the staff members are women, including the Deputy Director and Executive Officer. Of the 16 staff members whose gender is clear from their first names, 12 are women http://prisonreformtrust.org.uk/whoweare/staff.
Given that 95% of the country’s prison population are men, you might reasonably expect the Trust’s focus to be on reducing men’s imprisonment. You would, however, be disappointed, as we can see from pieces like this:
PRT even has a Director for Reducing Women’s Imprisonment. On its website the PRT says it believes custodial sentences should be imposed on fewer women.
