Overcrowding in the Adelaide Women’s Prison

The Adelaide Women’s Prison is at capacity which means many women have to stay at the Holden Hills police holding cells, which are not equipped for lengthier periods of incarceration. Linda talks to Michelle about why this is happening and how we, as a society, should be responding.
