Women convict dating friends with benefits after dating
And despite what fellow Wonder Women writer Jemima Thackray may think after spending one whole day in Brixton Prison shadowing the chaplain, Vicky Pryce is absolutely right about this.
Many female prisoners have been coerced into committing crimes for their partners and when they end up behind bars they find themselves abandoned and they have to survive. Females are still at risk of abuse and rape and unfortunately because they are inmates there is often no legal remedy available for them to seek justice. I have sat in on adjudications where to me it was clear that the prison officer is lying but the governor will always rule in their favour.
Often when a woman is sent to prison then it means the end of her relationship.So keeping on the right side of officers is paramount for survival.Many of these women have been abused or have mental health issues and they are vulnerable. Staff and inmates all have someone that they have to answer to. There are some crimes that even behind bars are seen as absolutely despicable and even fellow inmates will ostracise you if you are convicted of one of these.No, it turned out they had stolen a teddy bear from outside Kensington palace when Princess Diana had died.But when a power structure is in place it tends to be an imbalance of power and when that happens in prison, like the rest of the world, people tend to take advantage.
