Chapter 5 explores the contextual context of the inequality of women’s imprisonment as it creates and sustains conflict. Individualized vulnerabilities and components of prison capital combine to create this gendered context for trouble. Forms of gendered violence are connected to economic, social, and cultural demands of prison life. Troubled relationships inside often reproduce patterns of interpersonal violence reflect women’s pathways. Much of the violence in prison is embedded in these conflicted relationships in the form of interpersonal or domestic violence.

Keywords:   individualized vulnerabilities, intersectional inequalities, gendered violence, troubled relationships, interpersonal violence
