Welcome to Elizabeth Fry Toronto’s Book Blog

We discuss books that reveal the realities of women’s path to incarceration and the experience of incarceration.

Through novels and memoirs, the stories are told. In our criminal justice system, trials are open and public while the consequence of convictions are hidden behind high fences, locked gates and shame. We need to lower the fences and unlock the gates- we need to begin talking about the realities of incarceration. Join us, read our posts, write your own posts, and tell your friends about the blog.
