Unpacking Incarceration and Abuse

with Jessica Hutchison

The vast majority of women in prison are survivors of sexual abuse and interpersonal violence. In this episode, we hear from PH.D. candidate, Jessica Hutchison, whose research focuses on the use of strip-searching in women’s prisons. Jessica discusses some of the reasons why survivors of domestic violence go to prison and how their prison experience can cause them to re-live their trauma.
