Our project has been working for over 2 years.
We started working at the training in the Institute of the Press/the Printed media "Siberia". Our first project was an investigation
"Women's faces of prison" - a name that can be said to be comprehensive, and here we talk about a variety of women whose lives are connected with the correctional system. These are women who wait from the conclusion of their husbands or relatives, women who have served their sentence or were arrested. Women who work in the correctional system. "Children of the prison" - the first series of the project has already been collected. Here we will talk about motherhood during the imprisonment. Our heroes will be women who became mothers, while in custody and their babies. We will tell you about the fate of children born in the colonies and pre-trial detention centers. Also on this topic, we plan to conduct an investigation into the violations that women and their children face in the correctional system. We constantly publish information about detentions on mass actions and news about the most high-profile cases. Historical works - about the Solovetsky Islands, Karelia, Soviet camps. We do not do historical research, but we use available sources, but we try to ponder and submit material interestingly.
