The View is the only magazine by and for women in the criminal justice system. We do not rely on Government funding and run a platform to give the most vulnerable, disenfranchised a voice, to tell truth to power. Support The View in 2020.
We not only focus on the big news, but on the her-stories sent to us by women serving prison sentences. We are interested in the intersection in criminal justice where victims of abuse or violence or women who have been in care have been let down by the system, and are now trapped in criminal proceedings. Leanne sent us her harrowing experiences
" I am serving a 6 year sentence for conspiracy on my bother's murder conviction. I did 2 years at HMP Low Newton. I had to come to HMP New Hall to do the CARE course to deal with choices, actions, relationships and emotions. I have got to do this course as it is on my sentence plan..... I am suffering from really bad mental health , it has gone right down and I suffering some kind of a breakdown. I have been trying to get help since November 2018. I am really scared and frightened,- trying to get someone to listen to me in prison is impossible."
10,000 Steps for Justice is a virtual event, giving you the flexibility to take part in the comfort of your living room, in a local park or on your lunch break
10,000 steps for justice will be a great opportunity to engage your family and colleagues in this vital cause, whether you are working from home or remaining in your office.
But we also hope that it will re-ignite a strong sense of community across the criminal justice sector as the country continues to go through this difficult period of isolation. Spare a thought for women who are being locked in cells 24 hours a day , with appalling diets, lack of fresh air and sunlight and no exercise. Visits have been canceled. They are not allowed out to make calls or take a shower.
We have insightful and tested ways to keep you connected to your loved ones and get the information you need, and on prison reform if you are a prisoner or on license. From informative how-to articles to interviews with top Judges and barristers and women with extensive lived experience, we continue to bring you the solutions and stories you need and love.
We never offer legal advice but can connect you with reputable law firms, prison and public law solicitors and direct access barristers whom we trust.
We are well connected in the criminal justice and social reform sectors and we have a broad network of Law Centres, charities and specialist human rights advocates we regularly work with. For more information and to get involved, contact us.
