Evolve: Why womencentre

   

In this 12 minute film you will hear women at the Evolve WomenCentre in Halifax talking about the offences they have committed, the impact on their families, and how the WomenCentre has helped them to start turning their lives around. These personal accounts serve as a powerful reminder of the value of community solutions to women's offending and the damage that can be caused by unnecessary imprisonment.

This ten minute film presents the case for reserving prison as a place of last resort for women in the justice system and explores the scope for community solutions to crime. It is an excellent springboard for discussion and local action.
