Quote:
"Although the directors see their film [P4W: Prison for Women] as being primarily about the inmates' spirit of survival, a firm feminist voice emerges more strongly. We don't see any men in the film, but enough men are bitterly mentioned to make the prison signify the oppression and restriction of the patriarchal macrocosm."
-- Maurice Yacowar
