U of Tulsa Women's Studies Dept. examines female incarceration through film
Article here. Excerpt:
'The University of Tulsa’s Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) program is hosting a three-night film festival this week examining the unique conditions and tribulations facing incarcerated women.
“Women and Incarceration” is this year’s theme for the many WGS events to take place on campus. Oklahoma incarcerates more women per capita than any other state in the nation. The WGS program will feature two films each night on Oct. 5, 6 and 7.
On Tuesday, the two feature films will focus specifically on incarcerated mothers. “Prison Lullabies” follows the stories of four women serving prison sentences for nonviolent crimes.
Arrested pregnant, all of these women have given birth at the Taconic prison facility. The facility allows mothers to keep their children for the first 18 months if they participate in counseling sessions ranging from child care to anger management and drug rehabilitation.
“Blind Spot: Murder by Women” features individual interviews with six women convicted of murder. “Blind Spot” delves into the unique insights examining the circumstances leading to violence and the emotional, psychological and spiritual consequences of murder.'
Greed is for amateurs.
Knowledge without wisdom is a load of books on the back of an ass.
Scorn and mockery towards men in need is one of the reasons feminism is dying as we speak!.
