"Victoria Law boldly shines the light and breaks the silence with her exhaustive research, her attention to both the personal and political, and yes, calls us – with the imprisoned women whose stories she shares, always with so much passion and respect – to ‘a world without cages.’” - Nancy A. Heitzeg, Professor of Sociology and Critical Studies of Race and Ethnicity, St. Catherine University and Editor of Criminal InJustice at Critical Mass Progress
