Abstract

Easteal describes the extra pressure women from a non English speaking background may face when they find themselves imprisoned. These women experience difficulties with the prison culture which may cause shock and distress; language difficulties; an inability to adapt to food offered in prison; and lack of contact with family and visitors. These issues all combine to increase the isolation and stresses for NESB women incarcerated in Victorian prisons.

Keywords: women and imprisonment, prison culture

JEL Classification: K00
