Summary

Incarceration severely affects the health and wellbeing of women both during their incarceration and following release, further complicating the health disparities they already experience as a consequence of gender, race and social class. The scope of this international problem remains largely hidden from health professionals and policy makers. This book brings the issues into the light, with contributions from leading advocates, criminologists, feminists, nurses, physicians, public health professionals, social workers, sociologists and former prisoners.
