Surprising? I didnt expect to be so moved, that the women would be so thoughtful and honest and sorry - I dont know what I expected. But to hear through their own words what its like to be there, where they are in life and in jail, is transformational. I was hoping to use this in school, the power of words and writing. Probably higher level high school kids could appreciate. Thanks for this program. Way to go Eve Ensler!

the power of the written word

A powerful film showing the value of group, honesty, and journeling. I will never assume I know anything about those who .have been imprisoned by our society

What Their Words Did To Me
Review by Psychololgy G. on 11/14/21 review stating What Their Words Did To Me
This documentary profoundly changed my point of view on criminals. It was one of the most powerful things I have ever seen in my life. I think it is something everyone should see. It will move you. It moved me. I found myself in tears over it. It is simply a must see.

Amazing, powerful, and moving documentary. Seeing the humanity of people in prison and witnessing to their stories, will hopefully take us one step closer to abolishing the prison system.
