Women and Prison: A Site for Resistance| June 28, 2008
The number of women in prison is rising at an alarming rate.
Through videos, poetry, interviews, comics and other forms of expression Women and Prison: A Site for Resistance share women's stories of being in prison and surviving the criminal justice system.
The women involved with the site are hoping that these stories and experiences will help challenge this system that is putting more and more women behind bars.
The site is a project of Beyondmedia Education, an organization that uses media arts to voice the stories of under-represented women and girls. Stark Raven speaks with Joanne Archibald from Beyondmedia Education about the site, the process and the importance having women share their stories.
