Description : This describes and evaluates program U.S. programs for the economic rehabilitation of female offenders. The impact of the women’s movement and increases in the reported crime committed by women are also reviewed. Community-based programs were found to be the most promising, reflecting the fact that most women offenders are on probation. Programs tend to relate strongly to socioeconomic rehabilitation, including vocational training and education. Other successful programs deal with parenting and independent-living activities. The most comprehensive programs tend to deal with clients as socially and economically distressed people in need of specific steps to improve their standards of living, status, and independence. While earlier reform methods relied more on moral persuasion, new reform movements take a legal approach. Therefore, it can be expected that necessary changes in the criminal justice system increasingly will come through court order. A landmark case in this regard is Mary Glover et al. v. Perry Johnson et al. (Michigan, 1979). In the Michigan case, the State was ordered to provide economic rehabilitation programs for women offenders and to redress the inequities in their treatment. The case might serve as a model for litigation in other States. (NCJRS, modified).
