Voices of Incarcerated and Formerly
Incarcerated Women

SALLIE GLOVER WEBB
DONNA L. HUBBARD

This chapter explores firsthand the stresses and strains experienced by two
female inmates sentenced to the Georgia State Corrections System. Sallie
Glover Webb, currently incarcerated in Pulaski State Prison for Women, has
served sixteen years of a thirty-year prison sentence. Prior to her incarcera-

couraging rehabilitation among offenders. Throughout her story, which is
also told in her book (Hubbard, in press), it becomes evident how the macro
systems in our society fail to divert at-risk youth and young adults from the
evils that exist on those mean streets of our society.
