Share Your Study

The State of the Criminal Justice System Framework presents key outcomes and indicators based on available data. Other sources of information can help contextualize national indicators and build a better understanding of women’s experiences with the criminal justice system, as well as their needs when in contact with this system. This includes information and knowledge gained through qualitative (e.g., case studies and interviews) or quantitative research as well as narrative storytelling.
