Strip searching powers

In light of the recent events, and the case of a woman strip-searched before attending a festival, we discuss the effects of this practice on women – especially those who’ve suffered previous sexual assault.

Have you seen the recent Australian Story episode about Debbie Kilroy called Lady Justice? We thought it was pretty good, and had a chat on the show to discuss the details.

Wring out Fairlea Prison

Over the past two months we’ve showcased the Wring Out Fairlea radio documentary, produced out of 3CR.

The first Wring Out Fairlea demonstration was organised by the Coalition Against Women’s Imprisonment and took place at the former Fairlea women’s prison in Melbourne on 26 June 1988. The Wring Out action was repeated three more times over the next eight years, bringing thousands of people to encircle Fairlea prison in protest and in solidarity with the women inside.

Take a listen!
