SPEAKER: Hon. Rosemary Higgins

Established in January 2011, WINGS (Women in Need of Gender-specific Services) is a specialty problem-solving court in the Circuit Court of Cook County that helps women charged with felony prostitution to exit the commercial sex trade. Judge Higgins will provide an overview of WINGS, discuss the program design and explain how its two-year POWER Probation plan helps offenders, reduces recidivism and reduces the female prison population. We hope you can join us for this informative presentation that is part of the YLS' Violence Against Women Week. For more information on the week's activities, visit
