About this product
- DescriptionThe California Institution for Women, Tehachapi, pitted those who viewed rehabilitating female inmates as crucial to creating community bonds against critics who derided the coddling of hardened criminals, no matter what their gender. The controversy doomed the prison. This book argues that this failure does not negate its historical importance.
