Inside Out From Women’s Prisons: Resisting Punitive Drug Policies

Women are disproportionately affected by the prison industrial complex and repressive drug laws. Gender inequality, poverty, marginalization and weak governance/criminal justice systems compound this situation. This video aims to bolster collective power to advocate for prison/drug policy reform and women-centered harm reduction services from a feminist and intersectional perspective. It features formerly incarcerated women discussing their advocacy efforts to promote inspiring and forward-looking options for reform, support for women in prison, and mobilize for change.
