When a woman enters prison or a halfway house, she leaves behind part of her life, such as her home, her job or her children. Not knowing what is happening in her life outside prison or the halfway house can be extremely stressful.
The purpose of this guide is to help women in prison or in a halfway house maintain a certain measure of control over their lives. It answers practical legal questions about their reality. It helps women better understand their rights and responsibilities so they can make informed decisions.
Frontline workers can use this guide to provide information during workshops or their day-to-day work.
