Descrição

For the overwhelming majority of women leaving correctional institutions in the United States, there is one aspect of their identity that informs their needs, opportunities, hopes, and dreams: their roles as mothers. This Is Our Freedom provides an intimate and moving portrait of women’s journeys prior to and after incarceration. In interviews with seventy formerly incarcerated mothers, Geniece Crawford Monde captures how women reframe their marginalized identity and place themselves at the center of their own stories.

With incisive analysis, Monde reveals the complex ways that motherhood shapes post-incarceration life, while highlighting how the lasting legacy of mass incarceration continues to impact society’s most vulnerable members.
