Grave Concern - Graham Nash - Wild Tales research shows that prisons are often organised in accordance with the needs of No Room - Brutal Kuk - En Røyk Og En Ronk inmates, partly due to the low number of women in prison compared to men.
This is reflected Sit And Cry - Pat Kelly - Lonely Man prison architecture, security, the activities available and health services, among other things.
In addition, an even higher percentage of women than men in prison come from disadvantaged backgrounds. They have more often been the victims of abuse in Stand Up (Reach For The Sky) - Delegation - In Loves Time (The Delegation Story 1976-1983), have extensive and untreated mental health problems and substance abuse problems. Ina cross-disciplinary working group prepared the report 'Equal conditions for women and men under the responsibility of the Correctional Service' on behalf of the Directorate of the Norwegian Correctional Service.
The Directorate of the Norwegian Correctional Service KDI has announced that the report will be followed up by a separate strategy for the conditions for women in prison. The report largely confirms that women in prison are a particularly vulnerable group. In many cases, they risk serving under worse conditions than men. The poor state of Norwegian prison buildings directly impacts the conditions for women in prison.
For example, women have special sanitary needs, especially in connection with menstruation, menopause and pregnancy. This requires respect for their privacy and access to satisfactory sanitary facilities.
The NPM visits showed that the cells in several prisons did not have toilets, and, in some of these prisons, it was not possible to be let out of the cell to go to the toilet at night.
Such conditions are particularly challenging for menstruating or pregnant women, who often need more frequent access to toilets Madonna - Music washing facilities.
It is positive that new prisons are being established for women. Possibilities for physical activity are an important precondition for mental as well as physical health during long periods of imprisonment. However, this entails security challenges and depends on personnel resources. Most women the NPM spoke to stated that they feel safe in prison. There are, however, exceptions. In sections with few prison officers on guard, more women said that they do not feel safe.
Mixed-sex prisons with both female and male inmates give rise to particular challenges. A number of women have reported unwanted attention from male inmates, and there is a real risk of sexual harassment and abuse in such situations.
Few prisons have special procedures and training in place to detect or deal with such abuse. The Parliamentary Ombudsman has recommended that written procedures be developed for such situations. Meaningful activities, including school and work, can be crucial to counteracting the harmful effects of imprisonment and reducing the risk of future crime. However, the Parliamentary Ombudsman has found No Room - Brutal Kuk - En Røyk Og En Ronk work activities for female inmates are often inadequate or given low priority due to resource or security considerations.
The fact that female inmates as a group have weak labour market attachment makes this even more problematic. The health care services provided in prisons should be equivalent to the services provided to the general population.
Inmates must be offered services adapted to their individual needs following an individual assessment. Several prisons described an increase in the number of women with mental health problems in recent years.
The NPM found that many women have an unmet need for mental health support services. Both prison staff and administration as well as health services have echoed this concern. A high proportion of female inmates have been the victims of sexual abuse. Many have negative experiences of men. This could make it difficult for women to seek help from male health personnel.
The Parliamentary Ombudsman has recommended that steps be taken to ensure that women who, for whatever reason, want to see a female doctor have access to one. In interviews with women serving in mixed prisons, it was clear that many want the opportunity to take part in additional and more extensive substance abuse rehabilitation programmes. After visits to prisons where such opportunities have been inadequate, the Parliamentary Ombudsman has recommended that women be offered substance abuse treatment equivalent to that offered to male inmates.
Contact with the outside world, and particularly with family and children, is important to prison inmates. Since few prisons in Norway take female inmates, women risk being detained in prisons far away from their home.
This makes it difficult for some inmates to receive visits from family. This applies in particular to children who are too young to travel alone and children who do not live in Norway. Very few of the prisons that the NPM has visited provide inmates with No Room - Brutal Kuk - En Røyk Og En Ronk possibility of communicating with family via Skype or similar modern means of communication. The Parliamentary Ombudsman has recommended in several visit reports that the Norwegian Correctional Service introduce such technology, also in high-security prisons.
Physical activity Possibilities for physical activity are an important precondition for mental as well as physical health during long periods of imprisonment. Sense of security Most women the NPM spoke to stated that they feel safe in prison. School and work Meaningful activities, including school and work, can be crucial to counteracting the harmful effects of imprisonment and reducing the risk of future crime.
