Abstract:

"A testament to the profound influence of arts and education, Lorna Johnson's compelling film features six female prisoners who are part of a unique memoir-writing workshop called 'Woman is the Word.' Reading classic autobiographies such as 'Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl' by Harriet Ann Jacobs and 'The Cancer Journals' by Audre Lorde, the women are empowered to claim the events of their own lives and retell their own stories--ultimately liberating them from long-held secrets and silence. Moving interviews with the women inmates, their instructors and family members combined with verité footage of their fascinating classroom discussions reveal how poverty, under-education, domestic abuse have had a role in the destiny of many women in the program. Ultimately, the film examines the devastating cycle of imprisonment for the poor and underprivileged, and points to an inspired embodiment of prison reform."--Www.wmm.com.
