Community Re-Entry : Uncertain Futures for Women Leaving Prison, Hardback Book

Community Re-Entry : Uncertain Futures for Women Leaving Prison Hardback

Part of the Routledge Innovations in Corrections series

Description

In their journeys to prison and community re-entry, women leaving prison tend to share overarching challenges connected to lives of poverty, trauma, and abuse.

Community Re-Entry: Uncertain Futures for Women Leaving Prison provides a rare opportunity to hear directly from women who have spent time in a Canadian federal penitentiary.

Based on more than a decade of engagement with women in prison, the authors gathered rich and personal information on women's lived experiences during incarceration and what they anticipated and hoped for on release.

This book relates their narratives and the authors' critical analysis of their experiences both within and outside prison.

By bridging relational and other critical theories (critical feminist, critical race, critical disability, and post-structural understandings) with lived experience, this volume sheds light on the challenges incarcerated women face as they seek to return to the community as valued and contributing citizens. Community Re-Entry's unique perspective on women's post-imprisonment policy will appeal to academics, community-based advocates and activists, and undergraduate and postgraduate students studying criminology and social science courses on gender and crime, correctional policy, and qualitative research methods.
