the continuing adventures in TV land (a further look at the sterilization in CA's women's prisons)

I appeared on Current TV's Viewpoint last night to talk more in depth about the sterilizations that happened in California women's prisons and the issues of reproductive justice (or injustice) happening in women's prisons across the nation.

You can watch a clip of that segment here: http://current.com/shows/viewpoint/videos/victoria-law-says-female-priso...

Resistance Behind Bars enters the world of TV land

I don't have any summer public events planned for Resistance Behind Bars. It doesn't meant that I haven't been talking about issues facing people inside women's prisons though.

This past Saturday, I was on the Melissa Harris-Perry show to talk about the Pelican Bay hunger strikes, the issue of solitary confinement in general, and the sterilization of nearly 150 women in California prisons between 2006 and 2010.
