WCW Lunchtime Seminar
Moving Beyond Prisons: An Action Platform to Address Women's Needs in Massachusetts
Erika Kates, Ph.D., will present her lunchtime seminar, "Moving Beyond Prisons: An Action Platform to Address Women's Needs in Massachusetts," on March 27, 2014.
If we want to to reduce the number of women in prison we must address the issue of the large number of women held in jail pending trial. Yet few researchers and policymakers working in the justice area have made this a key focus of their work. This talk illustrates how Dr. Kates' research highlights the pretrial concerns of women in Massachusetts and forms the basis of the Massachusetts Women's Justice Network's action platform for change.
Lunchtime seminars are free and open to the public. Bring a lunch; coffee and tea will be served.
