A grass-roots social enterprise and campaigning platform that gives voice to women in the criminal justice system, provides an outlet for creativity, and creates for financial independence.
The View Magazine was started by a group of women whilst incarcerated to embody the challenges they faced with the criminal justice system.
We are a social enterprise and campaigning platform, by and for women of the criminal justice system.
Our quarterly print magazine gives voice to women, provides an outlet for creativity, and allows for financial independence.
The View is the only magazine that speaks truth to power about the failings of a system meant to protect women.
We are also a campaigning platform, fighting for decarceration, effective rehabilitation, and social inclusion.
Profits are reinvested into producing the magazine and towards policy research and events.
Your support and contributions will enable us to keep campaigning and staying firmly in view. Please consider donating regularly and buying gift subscriptions for your friends and colleagues.
