Of Women Inside: Prison Voices from India

ISBN # : 9780415535076
Author : Rani Dhavan Shankardass
pages: 307
Edition : Hardcover
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Routledge India
Published : 2012

Based on original research and personal encounters, this book narrates the real-life stories of women locked up in Indian prisons for alleged or actual violations of the state's criminal laws. It contextualises women offenders' experiences of the criminal justice system and of state custodial institutions within the larger narratives of their particular lives, thus interrogating the social as well as legal frameworks within which women face adversities in their lives and in custody. It argues that the sex and gender issues that affect women 'outside' are carried over 'inside', with extremely damaging consequences for the lives and mental health of women prisoners.

Author Bio: Rani Dhavan Shankardass is Secretary-General Penal Reform and Justice Association (PRAJA), India, and Honorary President of Penal Reform International (UK)
