The number of incarcerated women has increased dramatically within the last 2 decades. This project report explores the different crimes that women tend to commit and the social and economic factors that contribute to their involvement in crime. Maternal separation due to imprisonment can have a profound impact on the mother, child, and new caregivers. These individuals face a series of problems when a mother is incarcerated. These problems and the strategies used to manage them are identified. The project report will also examine mother-child relationships during the period of incarceration, as well as methods used in attempts to maintain a connection and a relationship with the incarcerated mother. Also discussed is the placement of children in foster care and challenges faced by incarcerated mothers who have their children in the child welfare system.
