The Young Women’s Justice Project shines a light on the experiences of young women aged 17–25 in contact with the criminal justice system, including the experiences of girls transitioning into adult services as they turn 18.

This literature review maps and expands the evidence-base around the experiences of young adult women in contact with the criminal justice system and age-informed, gender-sensitive responses to them, and identifies where significant gaps in knowledge remain.
