This period of lockdown has had a serious impact on people in prison, and has meant up to 23 hours of a day of solitary confinement in some instances. There are seven established WIs in women’s prisons across the UK and WI members have been showing their support and solidarity by sending messages and craft kits to their fellow members in our prison WIs.
