Specifically, it discusses the relationship between systemic processes and women’s and girls’ entanglement with the justice system. It also calls attention to the compounding effect of institutional discrimination on the concerns of justice-involved women and girls. Lastly, it highlights the need for more interdisciplinary research, multicultural training, and evidence-based gender- and culturally responsive legal interventions in all arenas of the justice system.
