This paper discusses how the women's prison system is fraught with ethical dilemmas and how the women within the system, no matter what the crime, are relatively helpless despite whatever physical strength or position of strength outside the system that they possess. It looks at how women in prisons might be subject to sexual harassment or rape by prison guards, be denied gynecological care by officials, or be threatened into submission to perform various acts by people in authority who possess superior physical strength. It presents a perspective on one of these issues, denial of gynecological care, in the form of three fictional interviews from people in the field of criminal justice: Joachim P., a correctional officer (male); Felicity M., a medical technical assistant; and Katerina G., a correctional treatment specialist.
