Publisher: ACT Women and Prisons: Invisible Bars – The Stories behind the Stats, 2009
Status – CURRENT
This paper presents the stories of ACT women with a variety of lived prison experiences and information from ACT women’s service providers who regularly support women with lived experience of prison and institutionalisation. The information gathered provides significant insight into the impact that imprisonment and institutionalisation have had on these women’s lives. The Women’s Centre for Health Matters (WCHM) and the ACT Women And Prisons Group (WAP) hope that this information will assist counsellors, social workers, case managers and other professionals who support women with lived prison experience to better meet their needs.
