In our May episode we hear the latest from women living in the Ruby Unit at Adelaide Women’s Prison, and discuss the current overcrowding situation and the problems with temporary housing at Holden Hill Watch house. We also have a story on the use of art at the Kunga Stopping Violence Program at the Alice Springs Correctional Centre and celebrate our own Linda Fiske’s graduation.
Women from Kunga Stopping Violence Program at the Alice Springs Correctional Centre share their messages – “What would you want other women who’ve arrived at the prison to know?”
