Re-Writing Lives from Inside Out

Writings from Vermont's incarcerated women tell their first-person accounts of addiction and mental illness within the prison setting, thus highlighting the challenges these women face in moving forward with their lives. The book offers discussion guides to encourage community involvement in understanding and acting upon issues raised, thus serving a dual educational and advocacy role.
