Grinnell Presentation and Article

Noga Ashkenazi, director of The Grey Area, will be giving a presentation at her alma mater,  Grinnell College, on November 17 about the documentary and her experiences teaching a course on Feminism in a women’s prison.  Ashkenazi will be joined by a former student and inmate from the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women. The talk will be hosted by the Grinnell Liberal Arts in Prison Program as part of a symposium on the benefits of education for incarcerated individuals.  The presentation is free and open to the public, and will be held on the Grinnell College Campus at Alumni Recitation Hall, room 302, at 8pm.

Noga was also interviewed for the second article in a series in the Altoona Herald about the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women.  The article entitled Nonprofits, volunteers lead ICIW rehab, not only talks about Noga’s experiences in prison, but also looks at some of the programs available to incarcerated women in Iowa, including the Skylark Project, run by the Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and the Iowa Task Force for Young Women.   Also, read the first article in the series:  Rehabilitation and renovation redefine Mitchellville prison.
