Review
"A real contribution to understanding what happens to women incarcerated in our prisons today. . . Women in Prison is an excellent primer on the subject. The topics Watterson covers include the history of women's prisons; who is in prison, for what crimes; the prison industries that support the state and are fueled by prisoners' unpaid or miserably paid wages; the profit-making companies, organizations, and communities who benefit from the boom in prison construction and the ever-expanding correctional employment; the difficulties faced by incarcerated women and their children; the frightening world of women inside prison; the plight of those women as they leave prison with $25 in their pockets and no place to call home, no job and children to support; the inadequate medical and psychological services provided for women in prison; and prison friendships, families and sexualities." —Women's Review of Books ( )

I can't believe more people haven't read this book; doesn't anyone care? I write to a few men in prison, and didn't think about women and I consider myself a femininst!
What happened? Somethings wrong with this picture. We should all be listening and start doing something about it. The concrete womb?!! it tweaked my soul!!
