Inside This Place, Not of It reveals some of the most egregious human rights violations within women’s prisons in the United States.
In their own words, the thirteen narrators in this book recount their lives leading up to incarceration and their experiences inside — ranging from forced sterilization and shackling during childbirth, to physical and sexual abuse by prison staff.
Together, their testimonies illustrate the harrowing struggles for survival that women in prison must endure.
