Reasons to be Cheerful with Ed Miliband and Geoff Lloyd


PRISON BREAK: Alternatives for women in the justice system

Season 1, Ep. 248

Hello! This week we’re talking about women in prison. Women make up a tiny proportion of the prison population - less than 5% - and yet their imprisonment can wreak lasting and far-reaching damage. Addressing the needs of this minority could have a significant positive impact, say Kate Paradine, CEO of Women in Prison, Paula Harriott, Head of Prisoner Engagement at the Prison Reform Trust and Mel Evans from No Births Behind Bars.


Plus: Ed’s gearing up for a festival special.
