Moving Into the New Millennium: Toward a Feminist Vision of Justice

Harris, M. K
June 4, 2015

In this special edition the second commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Pennsylvania Prison Society, on the future of corrections over the next 25 years., Harris presents a feminist critique of the correctional system’s reliance on imprisonment and intensive supervision. Feminist values suggest a rethinking of the punishment system, in favor of greater equality, less restriction of the individual and, where danger is a factor, more reliance on human contacts and relations than on physical restraints.
