Equality Unequal.

Labour peer Baroness Corston has produced a report arguing that prison be abolished for most female offenders, because:
The report claims: "Women and men are different. Equal treatment of men and women does not result in equal outcomes."
The Guardianistas are on board with this proposal, which is odd because up until now I had gotten the distinct impression that the absence of equal outcomes was prima facie proof of unequal treatment. Silly me.
