Transforming the Reformers: Punitiveness in Canadian Federally Sentenced Women’s Corrections

This chapter focuses on women's imprisonment. It outlines the composition and core recommendations of the Task Force on Federally Sentenced Women (TFFSW) and then describes the types of prisons subsequently built. It also discusses the development of these prisons and notes the ways in which this has departed from initial expectations by drawing on various reports, many of which have been highly critical of the way in which the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has subverted the Task Force's intentions.
