The Futures of Women’s Imprisonment



It is December 16th, 1997. I think of the imprisoned mothers who, because they are in gaol for a relatively minor crime, won’t be with their children this Christmas. I think, too, of the young girls who have already spent most of their childhoods in institutions, and who will this year be locked up in a prison cell for much of Christmas Day.
