This chapter highlights the pains of women's imprisonment, looking at the contemporaneous and longitudinal impact on their health and wellbeing, their family life, their mothering identity, stigma, and relationships. It explores the lived experience of two women who went to prison and were researched, covering researcher–participant relationships, power, purpose, ownership, and ethics. It also delves into concerns that women's collective and personal experiences of pain are subjected to being used, manipulated, and repackaged. The chapter talks about the marginal benefit and minimal impact of experiences on the actual lives of the criminalised women. It analyzes the truthful and in-depth recollection of involvement in research as criminalised women subjects.

Keywords:   criminalised women, women's imprisonment, researcher, research participant
