ABSTRACT
This article discusses reasons why the author of the article Pauline Campbell has taken it upon herself to stage demonstrations outside prisons where women have taken their own lives. The author states that Sarah Campbell, her only child, died in January 2003, while she was in the "care" of HMP & YOI Styal in Cheshire. Her inquest has still not taken place. Since the death of her daughter, a further 23 women prisoners have died. This disgraceful situation must be brought to the attention of the public. Politicians must take action. Political rhetoric and empty gestures are pitiful when compared against the loss of life and suffering and pain experienced by grieving families.
