In the News: Jailcare by Carolyn Sufrin

Jailcare focuses on the experiences of incarcerated pregnant women as well as on the practices of the jail guards and health providers who care for them, describing the contradictory ways that care and maternal identity emerge within a punitive space presumed to be devoid of care. Piper Kernan reviews Jailcare as “…a moving and galvanizing story of pregnant women in jail and those responsible for their health…essential reading for anyone who cares about women, children, and justice.”
