Documenting Women’s Prisons in the United States

The Oral History Master of Arts program (OHMA) and the Human Rights Institute at the Columbia Law School will host authors Ayelet Waldman and Robin Levi as part of the Oral History Seminar Series. Waldman and Levi will discuss and read from their new book, Inside This Place, Not Of It, an extraordinary account of women’s lives both inside and out of prison in their own voices, revealing the egregious human rights violations within women’s prisons in the United States. Their testimonies illustrate the seemingly insurmountable odds that women in prison overcome to survive.
