Get Involved

More than a quarter of women in the United States have had a loved one incarcerated. For Black women like Kristal, the odds are even higher. Supporting someone inside is an act of caregiving that shapes nearly every facet of life, from the financial burdens of paying for expensive phone calls to the emotional challenges of parenting across distance. To love someone who's locked up isn't a marginal experience – it's an American one. Yet so often, families go through this experience isolated, and in silence.

A Woman on the Outside has sparked conversations across the country about the experiences widely shared by women. Help us keep the dialogue going by hosting a screening, or bringing the film to your school, library or community group, which you can do through our partners Women Make Movies.
