New PDF release: Frauengesundheit im Gefängnis (German Edition)

By Lydia Halbhuber-Gassner,Gisela Pravda

Erhebungen zeigen, dass inhaftierte Frauen gesundheitlich besonders stark belastet sind. Die Gründe dafür sind laut der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) in frühen Erfahrungen in der Ursprungsfamilie zu suchen, die im Erwachsenenalter oft ihre Fortsetzung finden. Dies führt zu erheblichen biografischen Belastungen: Im Vergleich mit der weiblichen Bevölkerung in Deutschland sind inhaftierte Frauen um ein Vielfaches häufiger Opfer körperlicher und sexueller Gewalt geworden.
Die Beiträge in diesem Buch stellen die state of affairs der betroffenen Frauen im Strafvollzug aus unterschiedlichen Blickwinkeln dar und zeigen eindrucksvoll die Notwendigkeit einer geschlechtsspezifischen gesundheitlichen Versorgung für inhaftierte Frauen auf. Die Sensibilisierung für den Handlungsbedarf kann und sollte dabei allerdings nur ein erster Schritt sein. Das Buch will einen Beitrag zu einem breit angelegten Diskurs leisten, der konkrete Umsetzungsschritte für die Betroffenen initiiert.
