Closure of Holloway must become catalyst for lasting change

Dr Kate Paradine of Women in Prison has written an article for The Huffington Post  describing the harms of imprisonment and the opportunity to build something positive on the Holloway prison site.

Kate writes;

The closure of Holloway prison could yet become a catalyst for lasting change, if, in its place, we offered homes and constructive community support to address the core issues that repeatedly trigger offending. This would be a real legacy for social justice and could help substantially reduce the female prison population in the process.
