Abstract:

This paper addresses the struggles of women who worked in Lorton Prison and the impact of the prison’s closing on their careers and families. These women were often invisible because the prison workforce is rarely seen as a place for women. Many of these women relocated with their families from the Washington, DC area to Virginia where the prison was located to be near their work. They enrolled their children in schools, they became active in the community. They planned to retire from their positions in the prison. Many were partners in marraiges that had both spouses working at the prison. When Lorton closed their lives were in effect shattered.
