Abstract: There has been much activity within the criminal justice system in Scotland aimed at securing an approach to women in prison that is ‘radical and ambitious’; a call that was made by the Cabinet Secretary for Justice, Michael Matheson when he announced a halt to the development of a 300-bed prison for women at Inverclyde. Following his announcement, much activity was instigated as the Scottish Prison Service (SPS) and Scottish Government reviewed their plans for women, with meetings convened across the country to discuss what should happen next. There has been an admirable determination across all agencies to maintain momentum for change.
