Returning from Prison: Women's Perspectives

Returning from Prison: Women's Perspectives

In the second of our two-part series on life after prison, we look at female ex-offenders and what's being done locally to keep them on the right track.

Women account for nearly one fifth of the people behind bars or on parole in the United States. And when they return home to their communities, they often face very different challenges than their male counterparts. In the second of our two-part series on life after prison, we look at female offenders and what's being done locally to keep them on the right track.
