Gender and Incarceration A panel of advocates for the rights of incarcerated women discussed that women were the fasted growing group of incarcerated people in the United States. The panel of black women, some of whom had been imprisoned themselves, discussed the compounding effect the incarceration rate has had on their communities and how the study of incarceration, which had focused on men, changed when gender was considered. Topics included the over-policing of the black community.

“Gender, Race, and Incarceration,” held at Tulane University’s Lavin-Bernick Center, was sponsored by Newcomb-Tulane College and the Newcomb College Institute. It was affiliated with the 2013 Tulane Reading Project on Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.
