    • Society & Culture

In this first episode of From Where She Stands we explore the importance of touch for incarcerated women at Shakopee Correctional Facility in Minnesota. Until recently, the prison has prevented any sort of touching between inmates: no handshakes, no fist bumps, definitely no hugs. We also look at activity where there is touch inside Shakopee, through hair braiding. This episode is an exploration of the ways incarcerated women try to regain a sense of themselves. Join Piper Kerman in conversation with Uzo Aduba who plays Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren.Learn more about the Poussey Washington Fund and get involved at www.Crowdrise.com/PWF
