    This book broke my heart a thousand times The absolute atrocities and cruelties and just total lack of respect, agency, dignity given to women in the prison systemit s just so disheartening and awful The abuse inflicted on them by those in power is sickening, and I don t care what someone has done to be put in prison, they do not deserve what many of these women experienced I m grateful to the editors of this book for getting these stories out there, for letting these women speak their tru This book broke my heart a thousand times The absolute atrocities and cruelties and just total lack of respect, agency, dignity given to women in the prison systemit s just so disheartening and awful The abuse infl...

    This book was really eye opening into the prison culture of women Some of the stories that were contained in this book made me realize that even at your worst circumstances the fight is not over for freedom and you must keep on with your life.

    I have mixed feelings about this book, which is probably why it will be great to discuss at a book club, but just so you are aware, each chapter is a different woman s experience with her prison jail time I think half of the book outlines different laws and rules that are in effect, so it s a pretty short read I think this was supposed to be sort of an expose on women s prisons, but to me all it taught me was not to get messed up with this stuff, so you end up there in the first place They ge I have mixed feelings about this book, which is probably why it will be great to discuss at a book club, but just so you are aware, each chapter is a different woman s experience with her prison jail time I think half of the book outlines different laws and rules that are in effect, so it s a pretty short read I think this was supposed to be sort of an expose on women s prisons, but to me all it taught me was not to get messed up with this stuff, so you end up there in the first place They get the womens point of view, but it s so one sided it s hard to know the situation and why the treatment was the way it was Made me want to get the guards side or other perspectives, which I guess the book is trying to do by going to different prisons, but part of going to prison is that you give up some of your rights, and so it was hard to think that this was a shock to anyone going in Do I think...

    i was first exposed to this book through a talk that robin levy and angela davis gave at the hammer museum after its release the talk was informative and impressive, filled with haunting detail of the ways in which the fast growing population of women prisoners is getting exploited, abused and demoralized by the system i found this book to be evenimpressive than the talk, as it quickly eschews the systemic view of things after the two brief introductions by michelle alexander and the bo i was first exposed to this book through a talk that robin levy and angela davis gave at the hammer museum after its release the talk was informative and impressive, filled with haunting detail of the ways in which the fast growing population of women prisoners i...

    When we started a program for female ex offenders at my library, I knew we were doing a good thing The women sometimes open up a little bit and talk about the circumstances surrounding the crimes they committed, and maybe we ll hear bits and pieces about their lives.I had a pit in my stomach the whole time I was reading this book Knowing what I know now, about addiction and sexual abuse and violence against women, I am not at all surprised by the stories collected here I am disappointed in th When we started a program for female ex offenders at my library, I knew we were doing a good thing The women sometimes open up a little bit and talk about the circumstanc...

    This book was a pretty terrifying and depressing read It really struck me that if your mother made bad choices in life, you were destined to follow in her footsteps If she had abusive husbands boyfriends, so did her daughters If she was a drug addict, so became her daughters And the good intentions and interventions of grandparents and friends seem to have little to no deterrence to the cycle And all of that happens before they enter prison Prison is a whole other horror Women s prisons a This book was a pretty terrifying and depressing read It really struck me that if your mother made bad choices in life, you were destined to follow in her footsteps If she had abusive husbands boyfriends, so did her daughters If she was a drug addict, so became her daughters And the good intentions and interventions of grandparents and friends seem to have little to no deterrence to the cycle And all of that happens before they enter prison Prison is a whole other horror Women s prisons are just a pit of abuse These women are broken, and prison personnel take advantage of their broken ness They terrorize and manipulate the inmates, abuse them physically, sexually, psychologically, and get away with it, over and over again I think that the only silver lining to this b...
