Orange is the New Black, Netflix's hit series about the inner-workings of a fictional women's prison in Connecticut, has reignited a critical national dialog on the state of female correctional institutions. Though female offenders represent the country's fastest-growing prison population, navigating the criminal justice system remains a complicated and painful process. WMM turns the lens on women's prisons with new releases MOTHERS OF BEDFORD and THE GREY AREA: FEMINISM BEHIND BARS These eye-opening documentaries transport viewers behind the bars and into the very real lives of families marked by life on the inside.
WMM's newest collection, WOMEN BEHIND BARS: VOICES FROM THE INSIDE, features women coping with inadequate facilities, raising children from behind bars, overcoming substance abuse, sexual trauma and chronic recidivism, speaking out against domestic violence and struggling to nurture dreams long deferred. Journeying from the swamps of southern Louisiana to the classrooms of a maximum security Iowa prison, this diverse collection goes behind the scenes - and behind the bars - of an America incarcerated.
