In this Mother's Day episode of the podcast, we visit the Monday night writing group of WORTH -- short for Women On the Rise Telling HerStory -- a New York City-based advocacy and leadership organization for women prisoners past and present. At this session of the group, participants write about mothers and motherhood. How can writing about your mom increase your leadership abilities? And what are the conditions of many women who give birth in prison? This and more in this episode! I hope you'll visit the website of WORTH, to learn more about the organization, make a donation, or get involved in their "Birthing Behind Bars" campaign on pregnancy and other reproductive justice issues in prison.
