SANTOS, Jessika Borges Lima  e  SILVA, Márcio Santana da. Female incarceration: reflections of affective and associated factors. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.46, pp. 459-474. ISSN 2175-1390.

The present work approaches historically and critically the female incarceration, as well as the affective abandonment experienced by imprisoned women. The research was carried out based on a literature review in which aspects from the characteristics of the criminal women developed by positivist criminology at the end of the 19th century to the most current literary collection on the female incarceration 's subject were delineated. The breaking of the ideal of women established historically along with the patriarchal base power relations instituted upon these women emerged as main factors. Additionally, it was presented how power relations cross the body of imprisoned women through strategies of domination and to point out the meanings that permeate the entry of women into criminality, as well as the manner in which they are punished. Based on this last issue, the direct relationship between gender inequality and the actions of those directly involved with the female incarcerated population was presented.
