Girls in Justice System Need to Express Themselves; We Need to Hear Them

Wednesday 6th of February 2019 | Amerique du Nord, États-Unis
Juvenile Justice Information Exchange
Nouvelle

In a society where those behind bars are unqualifiedly perceived as corrupt and deserving of punishment, “I Am the Voice: Girls’ Reflections from Inside the Juvenile System” reminds us that girls are the fastest-growing segment of the juvenile justice system, largely due to the criminalization of their trauma. In order to create effective and sustainable systems reform, we must center the opinions of justice-involved girls who are the experts on their lived experiences.

The justice system rarely provides girls with an opportunity to express themselves and fails to prioritize their perceptions and ideas. Rights4Girls and the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality’s Initiative on Gender Justice and Opportunity published “I Am the Voice” to provide a space for girls to speak for themselves through visual and written work and provide a small window into their experiences with the juvenile justice system. We must hear their stories, recognize their brilliance and respect their perspectives.
