We must reject an “add prisons and stir” approach to advocacy in favor of making dismantling mass incarceration and other systems of institutional discrimination central to our efforts."
NAPW's Board President Jeanne Flavin and Research and Program Associate Laura Huss's co-authored piece in The Feminist Wire, "Feminism and the PIC: Why "Add-Incarceration-and-Stir" Doesn't Cut It," makes clear that "ending the criminalization of pregnant and parenting women challenges feminist and pro-choice organizations to declare common cause with other progressive movements that share a resolve to dismantle mass incarceration and the War on Drugs."continued »
