Women's Lived Experience in Decarceration & Carceral Resistance

We replay an excerpt from the forum event, Women's Lived Experience in Decarceration and Carceral Resistance, organised by Fitzroy Legal Service on Monday 24th October. We hear from Elena Campbell (CIJ - RMIT University) and Karen Fletcher (Flat Out) talking about the ways in which the system is currently failing women. //

 
We replay another excerpt from the forum event. This time we hear from Nina Storey (Homes Not Prisons, Women Transformative Justice) and Sara Stilianos (Homes Not Prisons, Women Transformative Justice). In this segment Nina and Sara discuss Victorian's broken bail laws as well as the community services and grassroots action that are needed to keep women out of the criminal system. //
