Incarcerated women in the United States are largely an invisible population because of their small numbers, their involvement in less violent and serious offenses, and their neglect by most criminologists. Yet all too often prison has become a dumping ground for women who lack options for self-support, or who need drug treatment, job training, or a haven from battering. This work draws on the life stories of forty women inmates at a minimum security prison in North Carolina. It explores their lives before imprisonment, enabling the reader to understand their incarceration within the context of childhood and adolescent experiences, domestic violence, alcohol and drug abuse, low education levels, and poor work histories. Lori B. Girshick relates the prisoners' views of doing time, the criminal justice system, and their own rehabilitation. She also interviews family members, friends, and social service providers to show how support networks function or fail. Girshick argues convincingly that the treatment of women in society creates circumstances that lead some of them to break the law, and she makes specific recommendations for policies that address the need for social change and for community programs designed to deter crime.… (mer)

Review: No Safe Haven by Lori B. Girshick. 04/22/2017

I should have realized that a book of this subject matter which, was published back in 1999 would be out-dated. However, I was thinking that it had the women’s emotions, what placed them there, how did they survive and details of where they come from. There was very little on the women prisoners.

Most of the book was based on percentages, statistic’s, that many states keep in files for research purposes. If I was researching I would have read a book more updated. I don’t even think I would of read this type of book back in 1999 with graphs, charts, and percentages of how and why many ethnic groups ended up in prison. I don’t dwell on the type of life they come from I would have liked to read about the stories and emotions within their inner self. I was taught not to judge a person by it’s cover and look beyond that and know the person within…I felt the book was misleading….The author claims of interviewing forty women. If she did then where are their stories?? I felt she just placed them in groups and labeled them with a percentage…. ( )
