Atwood roept op tot ondertekenen petitie tegen doodstraf

De Amerikaanse fotografe Jane Evelyn Atwood doet een oproep om een petitie te tekenen tegen de executie van Gaile Owens, een van de vrouwen die ze ooit fotografeerde voor haar boek Too Much Time, Women in Prison.
De oproep:

Gaile Owens, one of the women in my book Too Much Time, Women in Prison, and on death row in the USA for 22 years, is in danger of being executed. At the time of her conviction, the battered woman defense was not used. The Tennessee Supreme court has denied the request to change her sentence to life. *They have set an execution date for September 28.* The only one who can save her now is the Governor of the State she is in.
Please, please help!
Go to:

Read about Gaile and sign the petition. It takes no time, it’s simple to do.
I rarely sign petitions myself but am appealing to everyone I know to help.
Send this email to as many people as possible. We need as many names as we can get.

Thank you very much.
Jane Evelyn Atwood
