The number of women prisoners in US is more than sum of 3 other populated countries of China, Russia and India, due to their higher freedom level, body strength and other unknown factors.

In 2008 US had 24.7% of world prisoners with 9.8 million inmates totally that was on peak of it’s rate. As of the number dropped to 2.3 million after 2016 with rate of 698 /100,000. 

There has been 219,000 incarcerated women in US last November. The rate of women inmates has been global high, about 133 of 100,000 female citizens in this country. 

Celia Hatton, BBC News reported that China’s women prisoner number is increasing. 

Ding Yuxin was sentenced to serve 20 years in prison for bribing government officials. Celia Hatton wrote: “The woman put behind the bars for a non-violent crime.”

She published: the number of women prisoners raised for 46% while the rate of male inmates had 10% increase in last decade. 

If china’s women prisoner population grow at this rate China will hold the most women prisoners  in world and will take over US. 87% of  committed crime between  Chinese women has been non-violent and  42% has been drug offence.

Tasnim: America hosts 5% of world population and  holds one third of world female prisoners in.
