Beyondmedia Education has a fantastic website/zine/online installation/ongoing Warholesque happening up here called Women and Prison: A Site for Resistance. With high-quality journalism plus life-writing and essays by women in prison, this is a resource any prisoners’ rights activist will want to bookmark.
Recent topics covered include “Pregnant, in Prison and Denied Care“; “Giving Birth in Chains: The Shackling of Incarcerated Women During Labor and Delivery“; “Illegal Strip Searches at the Cook County Jail“; and “Children Do Hard Time for Their Parents’ Crime.”
Razor Wire Women co-editor Jodie Lawston used to be on the site’s board of directors back when she lived in the freezing Midwest. That’s not all the overlap this site has with Razor Wire Women, either–I was delighted to see several of Ana Lucia Gelabert’s whip-smart “Connie Convicta” comics, which feature prominently in RRW.
