Objectivity 3.4 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.7

U.K. Justice Secretary Dominic Raab plans to prohibit biological males from being housed in women’s prisons, following high-profile incidents involving transgender inmates. Officials say there have been seven incidents of transgender women attacking female prisoners in England and Wales in recent years. “The safety of female prisoners is being put at risk, and their dignity and privacy undermined, by being incarcerated with biological males, some of whom are known sex offenders,” one report about transgender prisoners in the U.K. reads.
