Drawing on interviews with 40 women inmates at a minimum security prison in North Carolina and their families, friends, and social service providers, Girshick (sociology and women's studies, Warren Wilson College, Asheville, NC) argues that treatment of women creates circumstances that lead some of them to break the law. Incarcerated, they remain a largely invisible population as unsafe and insecure as outside of prison. She makes policy recommendations for community involvement and societal changes. Annotation c.
