Synopsis:

The female inmate population in the United States has exploded in the past two decades, increasing nearly six-fold. The U.S. correctional system, however, has not expanded its health care to provide for this growing population of women. This comprehensive reader addresses the physical and mental needs of women inmates and suggests that they cannot be properly treated unless their lifestyles before, during, and after incarceration are considered.

This book abounds with statistics that outline the unique needs of the female inmate population. For instance, a significant proportion of female inmates suffer physical and sexual violence before serving time. Incarcerated teenagers are more likely than others from their age group to have engaged in behaviors that increased their risk for contracting sexually transmitted diseases like HIV. Because African American women are more likely than their counterparts to encounter prison time, their needs warrant specific attention.

Bringing together twenty original essays, this volume will be invaluable for lobbyists and policy makers as well as for graduate students and faculty in the fields of criminal justice and public health.

About the Author: Ronald L. Braithwaite is a professor in the department of community health and preventive medicine at the Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia. Kimberly Jacob Arriola is an assistant professor in the department of behavioral sciences and health education in the Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University in Atlanta. Cassandra Newkirk, a forensic psychiatrist, has over twenty years experience working in correctional settings.
