Tina Reynolds 6 United Nations Report on Violence against Women in .

The politics of representing the experiences of incarcerated women play out on a landscape of necessity and violence. To turn away from the need to understand and reveal the mechanisms and circumstances of dehumanization that mark the women’s prison is unconscionable in any political or intellectual sphere that makes a claim to feminism in the twenty-first century. 6 United Nations Report on Violence against Women in .

Interrupted Life is a gripping collection of writings by and about imprisoned women in the United States, a country that jails a larger percentage of its population than any other nation in the world. This eye-opening work brings together scores of voices from both inside and outside the prison system including incarcerated and previously incarcerated women, their advocates and allies, abolitionists, academics, and other analysts. In vivid, often highly personal essays, poems, stories, reports, and manifestos, they offer an unprecedented view of the realities of women's experiences as they try to sustain relations with children and family on the outside, struggle for healthcare, fight to define and achieve basic rights, deal with irrational sentencing systems, remake life after prison; and more. Together, these powerful writings are an intense and visceral examination of life behind bars for women, and, taken together, they underscore the failures of imagination and policy that have too often underwritten our current prison system.

Simple fellow
Great personal stories. Some stories seem exactly same as the others, with different wording. It somewhat gets played out (recidivism, lack of rehabilitation, stigmatization). These are all problems within the criminal justice system, but the book could have either been made shorter, so "stories" aren't duplicated, or add a variety of stories. Bought for academic purposes, and ended up enjoying the book.

Arrived on time and great book. It's really been valuable hearing the voices of these incarcerated women.

An okay book.

I was looking for first hand accounts of life in prison. This book does include a few of these, plus some poetry written by inmates. But it also includes lots of boring, tedious articles seemingly intended for prison or social work professionals. Lots of stuff about prison statistics.

Not a lot that I found interesting at all.

Would like to pass this book on to a friend but afraid they wouldn't like either.

“The asylum seekers were locked in their rooms for twenty-four hours, seven days a week, without fresh air or exercise. The children became so distraught that several started to exhibit strange behaviors such as banging their heads on the walls, making strange sounds, and refusing to eat…”
At least guards would not butt with rifles or bang the prisoners’ heads against the wall until they cracked open, and the brains splattered to the floor, as it was a common occurrence during interrogations in the death camp Omarska...
