A big problem is the lack of women's prisons in certain areas - eg none in wales at all. The cause of that of course is the incredibly lenient sentences handed out to female offenders for most crimes.

The result of such a lack of prisons means that when women do get locked up, many are a long way from their families and it is harder for people to visit. So of course the feminists idiots see this and their solution is to close women's prisons and give even more stupid sentences out.

In reality we need women to receive appropriate and equal sentences - you could easily fill a good size prison with those making malicious false rape allegations, and then a further one with witht the vast number of female perpetrators of domestic violence who currently go unpunished/unreported (eg look at the displarity between crime surveys and police figures on the issue). A third new woemn's facility woudl easily be filled with female sex offenders if they were punished the same way as men etc etc.

It's fair to say the female sentencing discount actually harms the minority of females who are unlucky enough to receive the same sentencing as male offenders. They would actually benefit from fair sentencing for all females as more prisons could be built and they would be able to better maintain relationship with family and friends on the outside.

And of course this would greatly improve their wellbeing thus reducing the number of attempted suicides and self harming.
