Behind the Bars on the Front Lines

I've become a fan of HBO series Oz. Compelling and sympathetic characters, it's extremely well written and carries some incredible criticism of the american prison system. This story on Alternet caught my attention this morning and it's worth the read. Written by a transgendered woman who has experienced the amercian prison system first hand, she brings up some important issues and offers insight to the problem of gendered prisons for a) men; and b) women.
