Creating Choices or Repeating History: Canadian Female Offenders and Correctional Reform
This article examines the conclusions of a recent Task Force on women in Canadian prisons. The Task Force helped to illuminate the plight of women, especially Native offenders (who represent a disproportionate number of incarcerated women in Canada). Although the Task Force recommendations for restructuring women’s imprisonment are laudable, the author outlines practical difficulties with attempts to implement them.
