Amony Vicky, 24, spent time in prison for defending herself in a domestic violence situation. Not able to go back to the situation out of fear and stress, she lives with temporarily with a family member and deals with the stigma of being formerly incarcerated and stresses of a single mother. Her school funding was pulled due to her sentence and she is unable to earn a living while caring for her two children. Vicky shared her story with me for the project Another Kind of Prison which illuminates the gender-based issues and social constructs women face outside prison internationally, which are not addressed by incarceration.
I am currently based in Uganda until June 2015 to complete this chapter of my project with support from the Puffin Foundation. I am also available for assignments.
