The Incarceration of Women: Punishing Bodies, Breaking Spirits;

Linda Moore, Phil Scraton

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Drawing on a decade's worth of research inside prisons in Northern Ireland, Moore and Scraton integrate in-depth interviews, focus groups, regime observation and documentary analysis to examine issues of equality, disciplines, mental health, self-harm, abuse and suicide. This independent primary research engages in controversies regarding the deaths of women in custody; a hunger strike concerning the status of politically affiliated women prisoners and the use of punitive strip search and punishment cells for vulnerable women. The Incarceration of Women tells the story of female incarceration through the voices and experiences of women, advancing feminist analysis of women's incarceration and the criminalisation of women.
