PIIn Search of Safety /Itakes a close look at the sources of gendered violence and conflict in womenrsquo;s prisons. The authors examine how intersectional inequalities and cumulative disadvantages are at the root of prison conflict and violence and mirror the womenrsquo;s pathways to prison. Women must negotiate these inequities by developing forms of prison capitalmdash;social, human, cultural, emotional, and economicmdash;to ensure their safety while inside. The authors also analyze how conflict and subsequent violence result from human-rights violations inside the prison that occur within the gendered context of substandard prison conditions, inequalities of capital among those imprisoned, and relationships with correctional staff.#160;IIn Search of Safety /Iproposes a way forwardmdash;the implementation of international human-rights standards for U.S. prisons.#160;BR #160;/PBR
