I was wondering if anyone has any links or book recommendations to offer on this topic.

I'm especially interested in timelines. When were female-only spaces provided, where, and for what stated reason.

The Ovarit thread below lists and describes international agreements made since World War 2 establishing minimum basic standards for prisons meant to insure human rights and dignity for female civilians held in government custody outside of wartime while awaiting criminal trials and/or after conviction. These agreements say that except in very rare circumstances such as mother and baby units, prisoners should always be segregated by sex, and juveniles should be kept separate from adults - and if possible, female prisoners should be kept in entirely separate female-only facilities governed and staffed exclusively by women because of the high risk posed by males held in prison as well as by males who run and work in prisons. Hope it's of use.
