Insight S2016 Ep40 - Lockdown Part 1

November 8th, 2016

Episode 185 of 186 episodes

Jenny Brockie and Insight gain exclusive access into an Australian maximum security women's prison to meet the women inside and hear their stories. Incarceration rates for women have increased 60 percent in the last decade, at a rate faster than that for men, and many women released from prison are returning to the system. In this special edition of Insight, Jenny Brockie conducts one-on-one interviews with women prisoners and officers for exceptionally frank accounts of prison life, and for the women detained, what led them there.
