Equal or Equitable: An Exploration of Educational and Vocational Program Availability for Male and Female Offenders

Volume 64 Number 2
December 2000

Existing research shows that the disparity between male and female inmates in terms of educational and vocational programming opportunities seems to be narrowing. After examining the available educational and vocational programs in over 400 United States institutions, the author finds that female inmates are being offered similar educational opportunities, though institutions for female inmates still predominantly offer training in lower-paying women's work.
