Kim Pate, B.A., B.Ed. (P.D.P.P.), LL.B, M.Sc (in progress) Executive Director of the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies. Kim is an advocate, activist and ally of women and girls in prison in Canada. She has worked with and on behalf of marginalized, victimized, criminalized, and imprisoned youth, men and women for more than two decades.
In addition to exploring the current trends toward the increased marginalization, victimization, criminalization, and institutionalization of women, especially poor and racialized women, as well as those classified as having disabling mental health and intellectual challenges, Kim discusses the historical and global tendency to further such oppression in prisons.
