University of Winnipeg Speaker Series:
Ann Hansen is a former member of Direct Action, whose activism included igniting dynamite at a facility that manufactured American cruise missiles. Although no one was killed in the blast and the group posted and phoned in warnings, Hansen received a life sentence in 1983. After more than seven long years in prison and more than twenty on parole, Hansen wrote Taking the Rap: Women Doing Time for Society’s Crimes .
Hosted by University of Winnipeg Criminal Justice Department.
