  1. Cap grads showcase talents – Here’s what you can check out this week:
  1. Capilano Universe Series: Kirsten McIlveen & Laurel WhitneyWomen Behind Bars: Experience and Education in Women’s Prisons. Incarcerated women are largely out of sight and thus forgotten. No longer part of their communities, they are the most marginalized in society. The intersection of sexism and racism victimizes women in prison. They are more likely to be younger, single, unemployed and without a high school diploma than Canadian women in general. But research shows that people who receive an education while jailed have a better chance of employment post-release and are less likely to return. Wednesday, April 26, Burnaby Public Library: McGill Branch, 4595 Albert St., Burnaby
