WOMEN INMATES COMPARED TO MEN HAD UNEQUAL ACCESS TO SERVICES. WHAT'S IMPORTANT IS THAT WE HAVE A JUSTICE SYSTEM AND A CORRECTIONS SYSTEM THAT TREATS PEOPLE FAIRLY. THAT'S THE PRIMARY REASON WHY THE STATE BROKE GROUND ON THIS WOMEN'S PRISON TODAY. EQUITY. CLOSE TO 200 WOMEN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE ARE BEHIND BARS. AND ALTHOUGH THE TREND IS GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, STATISTICS SHOW ONCE THEY GET OUT, MANY OF THOSE PRISONERS WILL RETURN. THE WOMEN'S RECIDIVISM RATE HAS BEEN DECREASING IN THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS. WE'RE DOWN INTO THE LOW 30'S FOR RECIDIVISM RATE. WE'D LIKE TO BE LOWER THAN THAT.

WE'LL WAIT AND SEE WHAT IT'S GOING TO BE ABOUT, WE'RE GOING TO WAIT AND SEE IF IT'S GOING TO LIVE UP TO EVERYTHING THAT IS EXPECTED TO BE. I PERSONALLY FEEL THAT IT CAN BE. BUT IT'S GOING TO TAKE EVERYBODY WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE IT
