Sept 20 screening of “Women Behind Bars: Voices of Oklahoma’s Incarcerated Women and Their Children”


Oklahoma ranks first in the nation in female incarceration, incarcerating 132 women per 100,000 population, compared to the national average of 68. To address the issues surrounding this statewide dilemma, the University of Oklahoma College of Liberal Studies will host a free screening of the documentary film, “Women Behind Bars: The Voices of Oklahoma’s Incarcerated Women and their Children,” followed by a panel discussion with experts in the field. The screening will be held Tuesday, Sept. 20 in the Thurman J. White Forum Building auditorium on the OU Norman campus. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the screening begins at 7 p.m. with the discussion following. All are welcome to attend.
