    Scott Boylston originally made this poster in 2003, but was asked to update it for the Action Committee for Women in Prison.

    In 2003, there were 100,000 women in prison. Two years later there were 140,000. In response to the new information, Boylston noted, "My job of updating the information graphics of the poster was sobering, and it goes right to the heart of why graphics can be so compelling... Just redesigning it made the increase in female inmates from 2003 to 2005 disturbingly concrete. I hate to think what a poster like this will look like in five years."
