In 2017, the Prison Reform Trust (PRT) published Counted Out, a report on the disparities and inequalities for Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) women within the prison system. The findings paint a picture of institutional racism and sexism.
The report was submitted to the Lammy Review prior to its final launch in September 2017. Commissioned in 2016 by former Prime Minister David Cameron and led by Tottenham Labour MP David Lammy, that review was tasked with collecting data and providing recommendations on the treatment of and outcomes for BAME people in the criminal justice system.
