National Study of Women's Correctional Programs.
Glick, Ruth M.; Neto, Virginia V.
This study of women's correctional programs identifies programs and services for women incarcerated in jails and prisons, and also outlines the range and types of community-based programs available to them. In addition it also profiles the typical women inmate, providing information on the age distribution, marital status, number of children, educational and vocational attainment, criminal history, and the attitudes of the women towards themselves and the jobs they held in the past. It includes a section on the criminal justice process, the methodology used in compiling the study, the research instruments used, and a list by state of women's correctional institutions with pertinent statistics.
