Muslim Women in Prison Pilot Report LBN would like to bring to your attention a groundbreaking report on Muslim women in prison and the challenges faced by these women, both in prison and within their communities outside of prison. Examples of issues include;
rejection by family and breakdown of the family unit
rebuilding self esteem after release
relocation away from their community
They don’t get that when I’m released their duty stops at the gate but i get another sentence from the community and that lasts forever.’
It’s so confusing because nobody in the family has been to prison before let alone a girl – there’s a big shame in that and i spend a lot of time crying over this because who will want to marry her now?
