“Group Working To Make Women’s Prisons More Women Friendly”


Please watch this video to see conversations with women at Tutwiler prison.  Special thanks to the Alabama Department of Corrections for making the conversations possible.

The Commission on Women and Girls in the Criminal Justice System met one on one with 10 inmates at Tutwiler Prison in Elmore County Monday. They came to the Wetumpka facility to hear from inmates about which programs they think work and which don’t.

“I think it’s about time. I’ve been doing time here in and out of this prison since 1982 and this is the first time it has every really happened,” Deborah Smith, inmate.
