This report by the Monash University Criminal Justice Research Consortium looks at national and international research into the effectiveness of services, programs and interventions for women offenders, including research into how women offenders' needs differ from those of male offenders and good practice principles for program and service delivery.

The review recommends that services and programs for women offenders are delivered by well trained and well supported staff and are holistic in nature, to account for the multiple issues generally faced by women offenders (for example, housing, drug use and abusive relationships).
