The government announced today that there would be a new strict regime for those in prison where to gain perks they have to work harder.
This is not the site to go into the why and wherefores on the policy, except...it only applies to male prisoners.
And the government says it loud and clear.
Why is it just for male prisoners and not all prisoners. Why such bias? Is it because the government do not believe in equality of justice and punishment for all prisoners.
This is a clear breach in human rights and equalities legislation and any savvy male prisoner should be straight onto their lawyer and take the government to court.
Basically a man in prison for burglary (terrible by the way) would be affected but this lady would not? Equality in 2013...
