Prison Wives are actually 12 women and one man whose loved one is or was incarcerated in prison. Each of our stories are unique and show a side of prison life that few experience much less even think about. We are not behind bars, have committed no crimes and yet many times we are judged more harshly than our loved ones because we choose to “stand by our man (woman).”
America leads the world in shackling its own citizens. Those who go to prison will die there, in spirit, if not in body. Thirteen people have faced social condemnation to keep the human spirit alive in the vast American prison system. ID channel has recorded our stories. There are others, thousands of others, but these 13 face America without shame or remorse, to publicly tell their lives of hardship and love; a love that conquers all.
Some of us go further in creating this website to shed more light on the darkness behind prison walls. Speak with us and we will tell you what cannot be read in the morning news and share feelings that are normally found only in repressive countries. Consider our lives and the feelings we share, then multiply it one million times to understand America. We hope you agree, it is time to change.
