A 2017 television interview on women and criminal justice reform in Massachusetts: Follow this link.
I made an appearance in this video by Meredith Berg to talk about alternatives to incarceration. I make the point that incarceration is neither necessary nor useful for most women in jails and prisons. While I am in favor of policies that minimize incarceration, I am concerned that the notion of “alternatives to incarceration” assumes that a crime has been committed and that the women involved are in fact criminals who require reform and supervision rather than jobs, housing and respect.
