“It’s the witches summer” – CITAD’ELLES n°20, a women’s magazine without a fence around it

Approached by Citad’elles magazine made by and for inmates at the Rennes female prison  I contributed to the last issue. It was a unique experience to which I responded positively.

Giving voices to women deprived of it is the ambition of the Citad’elles project. It enables a group of long-term prisoners of the Rennes prison centre to produce a professional quality women’s magazine. Created in 2012 by the association “Les établissements Bollec“, in collaboration with the teaching league – which benefits from the support of the Ministry of Culture for its actions within the framework of the culture-justice programme – Citad’elles is a real quarterly publication of about fifty pages distributed in the prison of Rennes and made available to the general public through its website.

Awarded a prize at the Journalism Forum of Tours 2017 by the Ministry of Culture, the Citad’elles project offers prisoners at the Rennes prison to carry out a quarterly review under professional conditions.”
