Film Location: 
New York, NY

Inside Women Inside exposes the institutionalized injustices that confront women in US prisons. At the North Carolina Correctional Center for Women and the Rikers Island Correctional Institute for Women, inmates discuss how they cope with family conflicts, illness, and pregnancy. They share testimonies of inadequate medical care, lack of a nutritious diet, loss of privacy and access to hygiene, overcrowding, and unpaid work. The film shows the optimistic strength of these incarcerated women despite their circumstances.
