Description

The majority of female prison inmates are also mothers of children under age 18. This study reveals how inmate mothers find places for their children to live, manage relationships with caregivers, demonstrate their fitness as mothers, and negotiate rights to their children under challenging circumstances. The impact of race, ethnicity, and marginality on women in prison is traced through the development of the women's motherhood careers. Enos teaches sociology at Rhode Island College. Annotation c.
