Female convicts struggle to reclaim their lives


Female convicts find it more difficult to reintegrate into their communities after serving their sentences than male convicts. This stigma is reportedly based on a societal belief that women are the gatekeepers of morality and by contrast, men are not held to the same moral standard. As a result, once a woman is accused or convicted of crime she is likely to be treated as an outcast for the rest of her life.
