    2. I really enjoyed this book I really took my time with this one There s just something about the solidarity between women who have reached the bottom that speaks of the strength that can be found in weakness Something else that stood out to me was the power of literacy Almost all of these women clung tightly to reading and writing to cope and many of these stories are victories Recommend to anyone interested in womens studies, equality or just interested in prison culture.

    3. Hearing the stories from all walks of women s prison life was amazing Some have a real talent to tell a story, some of been telling it for so long that it is engrained in theor lives forever.An awesome set of short stories by women in prison for a variety of reasons.

    4. In 1971, 600 women were in prison in California Today, there are over 11,000 Here some of those women s stories It is absolutely devastating to read Fuck prisons.

    5. Stories that need to be told When we as a society punish people, do we look at who we are producing and letting out back into the streets after their time is served

    6. The stories of 13 women all incarcerated in California for a variety of crimes One of the authors is a Leslie van Houten supporter, which really intrigues me Interesting read, overall

    7. I ve recommended this book because it is important for others to understand how messed up our justice system is, a reflection of our society.
