This work offers an analysis of the penal control of women at the end of the 20th century. The author develops many of the themes of her previous work, while introducing concepts such as ""gender testing"", and ""ameliorative justice"". Using the words and views of both staff and inmates of the women's prisons, Carlen presents a powerful case for both a quantitative and qualitative reduction in women's imprisonment.
