The Pains of Punishment
Hosted by Dr Gilly Sharpe, School of Law, University of Sheffield.
This online seminar was aimed principally at undergraduate and postgraduate students interested in women and the criminal justice system.
The event drew on perspectives from criminal justice research, policy and practice, as well as performance, and explored the gendered pains of punishment for criminalised women. It brought together scholars, practitioners, actors and campaigners to examine how penal practices interact with extra-penal forms of judgement and stigmatisation, and how the criminal justice system responds (or fails to respond) to women who have experienced victimisation and trauma.
This seminar will included the first public screening of the film adaptation of Sweatbox, by Chloe Moss. This was followed by presentations from:
Claire Morley, Ministry of Justice
Dr Gilly Sharpe, University of Sheffield
Katy Swaine Williams, Research and Policy Consultant (formerly Prison Reform Trust)
