Malawi: Women in Prison

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Malawi, Human Rights, Women & Gender

Sonya Donnelly writes about the plight of Malawian women in prison [1]: “Prison is often a very expensive way of making vulnerable women’s life situations much worse. Once a woman is incarcerated miles from her home, sometimes for months or years without the case progressing, she may lose her home, her relationships and her children in the process.”
