This is the topic covered in two parts by the publication "New Directions for Women" in the March/April and May/June, 1990 issues. The number of women in prison is about 7% and rapidly growing due to mandatory sentences, harsher laws, etc. All too often we forget that women prisoners exist and that they have problems not encountered by male prisoners, especially in the area of gender discrimination, stereotypes, etc. These two issues examine these problems in detail, covering: Battered women, lesbians and mothers, etc. Free to prisoners. $2.00 an issue, $12.00 a year for "free" folks.
