DescriptionTIME AND TIME AGAIN focuses on the lives of women in prison through interviews with four ex-prisoners. It looks at the offences women commit and the reasons why they commit them. It examines the realities of everyday life in prison - the violence, the racism, the forced medication. It explains why women go back: the feelings of worthlessness, of losing confidence and institutionalisation. Finally TIME AND TIME AGAIN shows the need for organisations like Women in Prison and the Black Female Prisoners Scheme which give help and support to women inside and aid the slow process of building a new life outside.
