Holloway soon became notorious again, in particular the unit for ‘highly disturbed’ women, C1. Conditions on the unit led to the formation of the campaigning group Women in Prison. In the 1990s, Holloway’s reputation was one of its worst, and the chief inspector of prisons walked out in disgust ‘appalled that any country could treat vulnerable women in the way that I saw in Holloway’. But its very last inspection report in 2015 found a much-improved prison, with ‘exceptional’ staff and ‘excellent’ mental health services. That same year the government announced it was no longer fit for purpose, women would be treated more humanely in ‘conditions better designed to keep them away from crime’. The following summer, Holloway closed and around 500 women were shipped out of London. On 17 June 2016, over a century of incarcerating women came to an end when the last prisoner ever to be released from Holloway walked out the gates.
