The Experiences of Transgender and Gender Variant People in Women's Correctional Facilities

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The minimal research that exists on transgender and gender-variant (TGV) people in prisons and jails focuses on people, particularly transgender women, placed in men’s facilities. While the experiences of TGV people placed in women’s facilities share some themes with the experiences of those placed in men’s facilities, they differ in a number of important ways, particularly when it comes to violence perpetrated by inmates and guards inside. Men’s and women’s facilities differ in a number of ways, including procedures inside, as well as the demographics of inmates and officers, that influence the treatment of TGV people as well as their perceptions of their experiences. In addition, placement, gender identity and expression, gender-confirming healthcare access, and the presence of allies within the system shape the treatment and experiences of TGV people placed in women’s prisons and sections of jail. In-depth interviews were used to explore the experiences of TGV people formerly placed in women’s prisons and sections of jails. This paper compares the experiences of participants with the data available about TGV people placed in men’s facilities.
