Why Are Women In Prison?: The Politics of Risk
Saturday, May 31, 12 to 2 pm, Room 1.76
In discussions about prison reform and decarceration, how does the concept of "risk" influence who goes to prison and for how long?
What's gender got to do with policing and prison? Did you know that the number of women in prison is increasing at nearly double the rate for men? What does this mean?
The panelists will share personal stories and discuss their work experience, focusing on current local and national campaigns.
I'll also be doing a short reading from Tenacious between short reading from 2:50 to 3 pm.
