Abstract

Studying the narrative told by women in prison will help society to understand the living conditions of women in prison who also have thoughts, feelings, interactions and hopes like other women in general. However, because of the tremendously different context, there is no comparison between women in general and those living in prison. Nevertheless, studying the narrative created and told liberally by the women who have direct experience will help society to acknowledge, understand and adjust our global perspective on female inmates. This study aims at revealing the promotion of selfrespect and self-confidence among women that will lead to the creation of a new life in prison. This is based on the belief that humans have diverse foundations of thought and life in different social contexts. Because of these, the self-creation and the meaning of the value of each individual woman are different. The study discloses that women use the in-prison learning as a driving force to push their internal potential forward and create a value and a new life for themselves both while living in prison and also for the future when they are discharged.
