Answer

I would say that the answer to this is quite a large one. One reason is that there is strong chivalry in the criminal justice system. Men do not want to see more females put in prison, and prosecutors tend to seek lesser sentences for women that commit crimes.

As if the fact that 80% of violent crimes are committed by men has nothing to do with it.

There is no doubt that women do get treated differently than men do in prison. Women have more personal needs than men do. They also need more privacy than men.

The answer depends on whether you want the ratio of men in prison compared to: men not in prison, all men, women in prison, the total prison population, the total population (in or out of prison). Since you have not specified what you require, it is not possible to give a more useful answer.

Men drink more than women but when they do drink men tend to prefer beer and women wine. So, yes, women drink more wine than men.
