Here are some interesting (for some) UK prison stats.

There are roughly 88,000 people incarcerated in our prison system.

Only 4,000 women.

There are around 60 individuals who are doing a 'whole
life' sentence - they will never ever get out.

Of these 60 - there are only 2 women.

Anyone know who they are ?

I have 2 books on Kindle now. Here is the first one.....

Escape/crime/thriller/comedy book
'The Escape Company' - got someone in prison and want them broken out - read here - http://goo.gl/Oa5yt

Agreed. Though this one had a bit of intelligence behind it.

True. But insidious spam is so much more enticing. The bait more readily taken.

Okay, ssw, I did the math of your intel for all of us here; Crunching your numbers, among the baddies behind bars in the UK, only 4.5% are female...Check -
Among those baddies only 3.3% are lifers..Check -
Among the lifers only .0007% are female. Check - Are we to infer that your story is going to hinge on the premise that Women Are More Law Abiding than the men?
OR, is it that female criminals know how not to get caught? Or do we all have to buy your book to find out, which it is? Best, Dee Tezelli, Seattle

You'd be better off posting on a prison forum. Those guys are always dreaming of escaping. Probably.

Try Alcatraz.com or strangeways.co.uk then click on forum. Good luck.

Hi - None of your points make any sense and don't be so feminist.

There are less females in prison because of the simple reason - female commit less crime than men - simple - but being British I can probably understand this better than Americans

How many films do you see where women are the gangsters and rob banks (for instance)
