Abstract: The report considers whether the increase in female imprisonment reflects women's increasing participation in crime, their participation in more serious crime or changing responses to female crime. Although the analyses focus upon women, in the concluding chapter we also discuss changes in male imprisonment in Scotland and speculate as to why women's imprisonment has risen disproportionately to the imprisonment of men.
