A few years ago, during my MA research at Byculla women’s jail had seen that whenever the jail officials announced the release of inmates who were granted bail, a commotion ensued...
While the women being released would hurriedly gather their belongings, some would make a run towards them. They would pull at their hairclips, dupattas, asking for anything that the ‘free’ women could hand down.
An inmate explained that many women are abandoned by their families once jailed or do not have the financial condition to seek basic things including clothes.
The special court has said that #SudhaBharadwaj cannot make any comment on the proceedings in the case while her lawyer said that she would want to write. Her writing could reveal so much about women in jails, the prison system making incarceration a punishment in itself.
“I cannot imagine a place where one might stand and have a clearer view of concentrated disadvantage based on racial, class and gender inequality in the country then from inside the walls of a women’s prison.” Beth Richie.
In India, would also be based on caste, religion.
