This page is targeted at researchers. The Research Hub provides an annotated bibliography of works related to women in the criminal justice system which Sisters Inside has found useful or interesting – mainly Australian publications from a human rights/social justice perspective.
This page is targeted at researchers with an interest in prison abolition and critical analysis of the carceral state. The Research Hub provides an annotated bibliography of all public documents produced by Sisters Inside since 1999, including major submissions to government inquiries which reference multiple other sources. Over time, we will progressively add “landmark” works related to women in the criminal justice system and other research/reports which Sisters Inside has found useful. These are mainly Australian publications from a human rights/social justice perspective. (Links to other national and international research hubs enable access to further resources relevant to criminalised women.)

How can you help?
The Sisters Inside Fund for Children supports children of women in the criminal justice system to choose their own future free of the burdens so commonly felt while their mother is in prison.
#Free Her Campaign
This campaign has been set up by Debbie Kilroy, CEO of Sisters Inside Inc. The funds raised will be used to release people from prison and pay warrants so they are not imprisoned.
