There are a number of excellent reports, readings, films, and other resources that relate to women and mass incarceration, reproductive health care, reproductive justice, and the broad reach of the carceral system in U.S. society. While we can’t list them all here, below are just a few we recommend.
In addition, we can also direct you to the following collections of resources that other organizations involved in the work have compiled:
- Readings: Women and Justice Project—Recommended Readings
- Media Articles: The Marshall Project—Pregnant Inmates, A curated collection of links*
- Resources: Illinois Birth Justice Resources
