Mass Incarceration in the Margins
Women, Trans & the Prison Industrial Complex

Reina Gossett, Tanisha Douglas, Sonni Farrow, Victoria Law, Tina Reynolds & Laura Whitehorn

Many statistics and conversations alike about prisons, seem to present a uniform image of prison populations. If one were to believe the contrived image created by our contemporary culture about prisons, through television shows and corporate media, it would seem as if all prisoners were unremorseful, violent, adult male, murderers and rapists. This is simply not the case.

While adult males do occupy the most space in these institutions; they are not alone. Women and Youth are becoming the largest growing demographics of newly arrested and incarcerated individuals.

Throughout the evening our panelists will discuss particular issues facing incarcerated Women and Trans peoples, from outlining the historical development of incarceration to issues of privatization, personal experience and resistance.
