‘Inside This Place’ Editor Robin Levi Featured by the Women in the World Foundation

In addition to receiving the National Council on Crime and Delinquency’s PASS Award for Literature for Inside This Place, Not of It: Narratives from Women’s Prisons this week, editor Robin Levi was also featured by Women in the World Foundation as their Woman of the Week.

From Women in the World Foundation: “As a staff attorney in the Women’s Rights Division of Human Rights Watch in the mid-1990’s, Robin Levi found herself working on a groundbreaking report on women in state prisons. Now the human rights director of Justice Now, a non-profit that focuses exclusively on the needs of female prisoners, Levi’s long experience with this population has become tragically timely: women are now the fastest-growing demographic within the American prison system.”
