Product Details


“Unruly Women is an important text for classroom teaching and research, because it places the ongoing crisis of women in prison in historical context. It provides a point of comparison with more recent research on this topic. The title also encourages readers to break out of the singular focus on incarcerated women to trace out the many different ways women have been—and continue to be—defined as unruly and deviant, in need of intense social control.” —Geraldine Casey, John Jay College of Criminal Justice

“Many women in prison have lost their voices in so many ways. One thing’s for sure: Karlene Faith will always speak up and out for them. When it comes to their incarcerated lives, she is the most knowledgeable, most thoroughly caring person I know. My first trip into the world of women behind bars was by Karlene’s side as we brought music—performance and instruments—into the prison. She taught me everything I know about women imprisoned. Read and learn! You will have an awakening.”—Cris Williamson, singer/songwriter
