ENDLESS SENTENCES: How communities can extend women’s sentences after release
This is an RLC fundraiser Webinar in partnership with Clean Break Theatre Company

Hosted by Gillian Jones QC, Joint Head of Red Lion Chambers, panel members will explore the issues relating to how communities can seemingly extend women’s sentences after their release, touching on the system, resettlement, societal pressures, why women are treated differently to men and the impact on children and families.

Joining the panel will be:

Harriet Wistrich, Founding Director at Centre for Women’s Justice
Ambreen Razia, Actress and Playwright
Róisín McBrinn, Joint Artistic Director at Clean Break
Amanda Richardson, Clean Break Trustee
Jennifer Joseph, Member of Clean Break

The webinar will also include a special preview of a scene from Clean Break’s forthcoming play ‘The Favour’ (co-produced with the Bush Theatre) written by actress and playwright Ambreen Razia (Hounslow Diaries, Ilford Lane) and directed by Róisín McBrinn, Joint Artistic Director of Clean Break. The play focuses on Aleena and her struggles to find a place for herself on the other side of prison. It explores the pressure her community places on her and impact of imprisonment of women and their children and families.

The panel and performance will be followed by an opportunity for you to ask questions.
