Written for policy makers and practitioners involved with the growing number of women in jails and prisons, this book argues that the system needs to become more proactive in recognizing the needs of this population, and more proactive in addressing these needs. Many excerpts are presented from the first person narratives of non-recidivist women who tell what they feel they need to remain free and empowered in a context of powerlessness and increasing social control.
