Women’s resistance in prison

Our feature today is an interview with activist, author and mother, Vikki Law.

Law was the keynote speaker at the 2009 Edmonton Anarchist Bookfair. Her book, Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles Of Incarcerated Women, tells the stories of women organizing in prisons. She publishes the zine, Tenacious: Art and Writing from Women in Prison.

We spoke with Law late last year about another project, Don’t Leave Your Friends Behind, which works to teach non-parent activists how to be allies.

Please note, while the project is grateful for donations, the library is very small. Please let the Wish List guide  any donations.

The Prisoner Correspondence Project coordinates communication between inmates who are gay, lesbian, transsexual, transgender, gendervariant, two-spirit, intersex, bisexual and queer and other members of those communities in Canada and the United States.

The list of facts on incarcerated women in Canada was complied from information from the Elizabeth Fry Society of Canada.
