Speak out speak strong: researching the needs of Aboriginal women in custody

by Lawrie R

Report
Year 2003
City Sydney
Institution Aboriginal Justice Advisory Council

Abstract

This report describes the Speak out speak strong project, which evolved in response to concerns about the increasing rate at which Aboriginal women are imprisoned in NSW and the lack of qualitative information about their experiences. The project was implemented in two stages: a comprehensive survey of 50 Aboriginal women imprisoned in NSW; and follow up narrative interviews with a small sample of participants. The report details the demographics of the women in custody, and their past experiences of abuse, drug and alcohol use, and separation from families. The report explores the women's interaction with the criminal justice system and their transition back to the community.
