Changes at Ruby Unit, Adelaide Women’s Prison

Each show we report from the Ruby Unit at the Adelaide Women’s Prison.

In this package we hear from women living in the unit preparing for their numbers to double in size. What’s it like to live in the only non-smoking unit at the prison, and how do women deal with constant change.
