This book is well researched, well documented and beautifully told. Talvi steps behind the walls of various women's prison systems and gets right at the truth of what goes on. We're shown how the system treats women accused of committing crimes and the disparity with their male counterparts. We meet women who have suffered horribly from lack of medical care for health conditions unique to females. Some of the stories are heartbreaking, some enlightening and others infuriating. Everyone should read this book because what happens to these women ultimately affects us all. ( )
