Iranian women's pathways to imprisonment

Sadeghi-Fassaei, Soheila and Kendall, Kathleen (2001) Iranian women's pathways to imprisonment Women’s Studies International Forum, 24, (6), pp. 701-710. (doi:10.1016/S0277-5395(01)00202-3).

Record type: Article


Using official data and interviews with 101 women in Evin prison, Tehran, this article explores prisoners' pathways to incarceration. The concept of "intersection" is used to help understand how traversing and diverging networks of power position women in ways that encourage their criminal actions, criminalization, and contribute toward their imprisonment. The term also highlights points of overlap and distinction between Iranian and Western women's experiences. Importantly, it encourages us to consider the global context of criminal justice.
