Literary Nonfiction. Women's Studies. RELEASING HOPE was born out of the first book; ARRESTING HOPE: WOMEN TAKING ACTION IN PRISON HEALTH INSIDE OUT (Inanna Publications; 2014); which describes participatory health research and the experience of women incarcerated inside a British Columbian provincial correctional center from 2005 to 2007. Readers of ARRESTING HOPE; moved by the stories written by incarcerated women; asked; "What happened next? How are the women doing now that they are released from prison?" Starting in 2007; women who were released from prison formed a network called Women in2 Healing because they wished to continue participatory health research in the community. Their overarching research question was; "How can we improve the health of women in prison and following their release?" RELEASING HOPE describes the journeys of formerly incarcerated women and their encounters with the barriers (financial; emotional; familial; systemic) that they confronted during their reintegration in the community. RELEASING HOPE touches on the stories of individual women and the learning from participatory health research that made visible their lives; their hopes; their dreams and fears.
