Inside Out

In this photo essay, Mná100 focuses on mass imprisonment of women in Mountjoy Prison, Kilmainham Gaol and the North Dublin Union. Mná100 worked in partnership with City of Dublin ETB teachers and students from the Education Centre Mountjoy to create this photo-essay focusing on the experiences of the imprisoned women. Using images of artefacts from the Prison Museum, along with the voices of students from the History class, it looks at the story of these women’s imprisonment.
