Entry Lessons: The Stories of Women Fighting for Their Place, Their Children, and Their Futures After Incarceration
Urgent and empathetic, Entry Lessons is one of the first examinations of the lasting impact of incarceration on women and their families.
Recent reports show that women make up the fastest-growing population within the United States’ criminal justice system. And yet, despite necessary conversations about incarceration and prison abolition, their stories of abuse, neglect, poverty, and family separation often go untold. Now, through immersive storytelling and expert analysis of women’s lives after prison, anthropologist Jorja Leap explores their journeys into, through, and beyond the jail cell.
