Sandra Gidley attacks jailing of women

Saturday's Independent reports the 11th female prison suicide this year in an article headed "Jailing of women attacked as suicides increase".
Sandra Gidley, the Liberal Democrat spokeswoman on women's issues, said: "Most judges are men and have little idea how vulnerable and damaged many of these women are, as well as the fact they may have children they should look after."
