|Plot Summary of Conscience & Consequence: A Prison Memoir|
|"Inside Alderson Women's Prison it's no "Camp Cupcake"
This is the lucid, intensely moving, and highly personal account of Clare Hanrahan's six-month incarceration inside the oldest and largest U.S. Federal prison for women. As a political prisoner and Inmate No. 90285-020, the author experienced life among more than 900 other women held in this prison labor camp in the mountains of West Virginia. She shares the stories of some of the women she met inside and details some of the mental cruelties imposed on these nonviolent women by this punitve prison system.
Conscience & consequence chronicles the peaceful protest actions that resulted in the author's imprisonment, and exposes some of the devastating abuses of the Federal Bureau of Prisons. The author is a political and social justice activist. She was convicted of misdemeanor trespass at Fort Benning, Georgia, and entered Alderson Federal prison in July 2001. She is part of a nonviolent movement acting to bring about closure of the U.S. Army School of the Americas, a combat training camp for Latin American military implicated in documented human rights abuses.
Conscience & Consequence sheds light inside one of Americas Federal Prison Camps and into the lives of some of America's one million nonviolent prisoners."
