Women Behind Bars
A moving series about the lives of women who have been convicted of murder.
Women Behind Bars provides an in-depth profile of the lives of incarcerated women, delving deep into the stories of how and why they committed their crimes. Each woman has a unique story to tell. From cold-blooded murder to crimes of passion, these jaw-dropping stories will shed light on the most awful side of human nature and the frightening world behind prison walls.
Sometimes the women take responsibility for the crimes; sometimes they do not. Some of the sentences imposed on these women seem too heavy, some too light. The back stories vary; murders, attempted murders, kidnappings, rapes and robberies are described, often by the perpetrators who now sit in prison.
Over 36 episodes, Women Behind Bars presents the unvarnished reality of the emotional and difficult lives of female inmates who have been incarcerated for significant periods of time.
