What to Expect in Prison, Avoiding Abuse Inside

Filed under: media related,social justice — Honilima @ 1:58 pm


If you want a sobering watch, check out the videos featured on the Marshall Project (worth looking at just to see one guy’s wonky mustache) about to keep yourself safe from sexual abuse. There is one for men and one for women. Each feature prisoners, prison administration, and an introduction by a former prisoner who was a victim of this type of abuse.

If you have a woman family member in prison watch the first half, at the twelve minute mark they begin to talk about avoiding prison rape so you may want to be in the right mood to watch it in totality.

This topic was also discussed in the Voice of Witness Series Inside this Place, Not of It a great book about women behind bars done in an oral history format and very powerful to have everything in the women’s own words.
