Jef, already if cis women are considered a risk to other women they can be put in men's prisons to protect women inmates. So that whole argument is completely bogus.

Have you got a link for details on this please?

Couldn't find an example of that in the UK from googling so hopefully Steven. can come back, however two examples of women being put in men's prisons for very different reasons:

Canada has put a completely non-violent (cis) women prisoner in a mens prisons for 'space reasons': http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/beatrice-hunter-now-in-hmp-1.4143025

In this US case a (cis) woman was put in a men's prison due to severity of the conviction: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/world/female-ice-cream-killer-moved-all-male-prison-article-1.2948632

Thanks Mike.

My request was primarily driven from an interest in UK prison policy, but interesting links nonetheless.

Hopefully Steven will come back with something if he has a chance.

I remember reading that somewhere but now cannot find it or recall where it was, so it may not have been about the UK actually.
