A Study of Homosexuality Among Women Inmates At Two State Prisons.

An Interesting Dissertation on Homosexuality in Women's Prisons Nelson, Catherine I. [b.1944]. A Study Of Homsexuality [sic] Among Women Inmates At Two State Prisons. Philadelphia, January 1974. [vii], 171, [45] ff. Photocopied typescript in textured-paper binder, plastic label to spine. Light soiling and shelfwear, spine ends and corners bumped and lightly worn, light toning, tiny oil stains and pencil marks to a few leaves, (photocopied) annotations to cover sheet. $300. * Written as a PhD thesis at the Department of Sociology at Temple University, this study presents findings from women's state prisons in Clinton, New Jersey and Muncy, Pennsylvania. The study was designed to analyze both the incidence of same-sex relationships and sexual activities and the differences in attitudes and behavior among black and white inmates. Among its conclusions was the finding that many inmates who had same-sex relationships in prisons reported at least some experience with same-sex relationships or sexual activities before prison (44% of those surveyed in both prisons), and the recommendation that researchers continue to use the then-recent framework of "preprison experiences" when studying inmate behavior. Nelson's work remains relevant today, and her thesis was cited as recently as 2022. OCLC locates 4 physical copies (University of Toronto (2 copies), University of Quebec in Montreal, Monash University).
