Gina Clayton-Johnson, founder and executive director of the Essie Justice Group, an advocacy group for women with incarcerated loved ones, joins to discuss the unique hardships of women who shoulder the burden of America's epidemic of mass incarceration. The US has the highest incarceration rate in the world and the emotional, financial and political burden of this crisis falls upon women. The Essie Justice Group seeks to lesson that burden and harnesses the collective power of women to bring about change.
