The prison overcrowding ‘problem’ would be solved overnight if male criminals were treated in the same way as female criminals. Time for some real gender equality?
In the coming week we plan to publish a lengthy report on the anti-male bias of the entire British criminal justice system with respect to tackling intimate partner violence. One link in the report will be to a piece by RedPillUK – here. Male offenders are treated far more harshly than female offenders in terms of sentencing. As the RedPillUK piece shows, whatever the crimes men commit, they’re far more likely than women to serve a custodial sentence – by a factor of 3.4 on average. Looking only at cases where custodial sentences are awarded, men receive sentences on average 64% longer than women.
