Inspired by her experience teaching in three of them, Dodge (history, Westfield State College, Massachusetts) explores the treatment of women in Illinois prisons from the early 19th to the late 20th century. She focuses on convicted felons to investigate who the women were; their crimes; how patterns of criminality, prosecution, conviction, and sentencing shifted over the decades; their prison experience and efforts to resist or accommodate the regimes; and other aspects.
