Hey folks! For those of you who missed Diane Goeres-Gardner at the History Center on Wednesday night, you’re in luck. Visit our Facebook page for a video clip of the lecture. Here are some photos of the presentation to whet your appetite.

Diane gave us some fascinating facts on early prison systems – there were no facilities for women in prisons, often times. In many cases, women were forced into solitary confinement in an all-male prison, because of this fact. INTERESTING!
