This week's show features a conversation with Victoria Law. From her PM Press Author's page:

"Victoria Law is a writer, photographer, and mother. After a brief stint as a teenage armed robber, she became involved in prisoner support. In 1996, she helped start Books Through Bars-New York City, a group that sends free books to prisoners nationwide. In 2000, she began concentrating on the needs and actions of women in prison, drawing attention to their issues by writing articles and giving public presentations. Since 2002, she has worked with women incarcerated nationwide to produce Tenacious: Art and Writings from Women in Prison and has facilitated having incarcerated women's writings published in larger publications, such as Clamor magazine, the website "Women and Prison: A Site for Resistance" and the upcoming anthology Interrupted Lives."

This week we speak to Vikki about the second edition of her book, "Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women." We discuss patriarchy, criminalization & invisibility that is faced by those held in women's prisons. We also talk about resistance, organizing, support and engagement of those on the inside and about the organizing that formerly incarcerated people do to help their comrades on the inside.

This show is available at www.ashevillefm.org from 11/5/12 thru11/11/12.
