Fear, fun and friendship are some of what you encounter in prison. There are women of different ages, backgrounds, races, religions, politics. The biggest problems are Government rules and regulations that run these establishments. Apathy and neglect bottled with ignorance and self promotion….and that’s not the inmates! Gloria was 72 when she went to Carswell Federal Prison for Women. She quickly learned that it’s not what you see in movies. You spend the next 4 to 5 years, 24/7/365 with these women. You laugh, cry, like and hate them. She decided to write a book about the experiences and hopefully call attention to a need for prison reform as well as to share some fun and not so fun happenings in prison. It is a totally enlightening life that a majority of people don’t have a clue about. It is not an experience for the faint of heart, and she doesn’t recommend it to anyone! She wanted answers to questions like: Why can’t felons vote? Gloria thought it is something that people should know about and understand what we Americans have created or allowed to be created. That probably has a lot to do with all of the things that are wrong with the system and society, and also the things that are right.
