This research was funded in part by a research fellowship from the University of Cincinnati's Research Council. An earlier version of this paper was presented at the 2000 annual meetings of the American Society of Criminology in San Francisco, California. The authors wish to thank Patricia Van Voorhis, Peg Bortner, Lois Presser, and Courtney Sears for their critical feedback on earlier drafts of this article. Any shortcomings, however, are entirely due to the authors. We are also grateful to the staff at the prison studied who agreed to take part in this research. We are in the greatest debt to the young women who told us their stories, which were often painful, sometimes humorous, and always powerful and insightful.
