More than 90% of women in prison have experienced violence in their own lives. Presented as part of the Until The Violence Stops: Rhode Island Festival, this event will bring forth raw voices of fierceness and honesty written by women from Rhode Island prisons who are moving forward toward healing, understanding, and change, ultimately impacting laws and treatment of incarcerated women. For the first time Rhode Island women who are presently incarcerated and have themselves experienced violence are being invited to tell their own stories through their words. These writings will be performed during the March 11, 2010 production, and the performance will conclude with a panel discussion about issues affecting women in prison.
