Les usages punitifs du rose en prison

Abstract : Feminine color in the West, pink crosses several times the prison world, especially via the Baker-Miller Pink (BMP). This shade of pink would have the capacity to appease the prisoners if one paints their cell. Become a real popular phenomenon taken up by fashion or by artists, the BMP actually conceals a system of heterosexual oppression that relies on the symbolism of pink to humiliate and punish male prisoners in a prison space where virility is the norm. Through the prism of gender studies, this article seeks to analyze how pink is used as a tool for the exercise of power in prisons.
