International Women´s Day 2010…

Today March 8th 2010 is International Women´s Day. A good day to start this new blog for and with all women who are in prisons everywhere in the world.

This blog is connected to the International Prison Watch Weblogs, which is a growing network of sites where information about prisons, prisoner rights, abuse of prisoners and more is gathered and documented, with the goal to expose human rights abuses and from there to push for reform.

Here a few photos of Amsterdammers showing solidarity with imprisoned women:

At the little square dedicated to thoughts for Peace we showed our solidarity…

And here at the Monument in remembrance of Slavery, Oosterpark, Amsterdam, we showed our solidarity with women who are imprisoned.
