Breaking Out

Janice Nix

Overview

Women make up 5% of the United Kingdom's incarcerated population, but account for rougly a quarter of prison suicides. Upon release from prison, women experience unique challenges securing housing and employment, refraining from prior criminal behaviors, and maintaining healthy relationships.

Janice Nix is an engagement officer in England who has overcome a lengthy criminal record of shoplifting, theft, and narcotics to help others satisfy parole requirements and retain their freedom. In Breaking Out, Nix recounts her most memorable cases as an engagement officer and considers the systemic failures of the criminal justice system that prevent many women from making positive changes in their lives.

"I remembered what Ida had said to me. Anger can eat you up. She was right. Even when life's bullshit was bad, I was determined to master my anger."
