WLRP supports Pennsylvania Women Lifer's who want to share their positive experiences, personal growth, and to assist the women in seeking a second chance.

The Women Lifers Resume Project supports all of the 200 plus women in Pennsylvania who are serving a life without parole sentence (LWOP).  Resumes featured on this site are of a voluntary nature and should not be perceived as the only women we support for release.  Some women have elected not to participate at this time.

Who are we?

We are mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sisters, aunts. We are beloved family members.

Self-Identities Podcast

This podcast was recorded inside SCI Muncy State Correctional Institution. Muncy is medium/maximum security prison that houses Women located in Pennsylvania.


Self-Identities is a podcast that engages conversations with convicted women murders who are facing a life sentence. This is an educational podcast and does not deal with the women’s crime. Instead, the focus is on their stories and who they are as individuals. Moving away from the sensationalizing aspects of true crime. This podcast aims to educate and engage the listener. Hosted by feminist criminologist Dr. Kathryn Whiteley, co produced by AJ Nutter.

Letters of Support  from family members, loved ones and friends are very much welcomed and will also be included on the WLRP website.


If you wish to participate, there are some areas to consider when writing your letter: 

  • A description of your current relationship with the incarcerated person.


  • The length of time you have been supporting this person.


  • What affect this person's incarceration has had on you (e.g. emotionally, spiritually, financially, etc.).

  • If this person is given the opportunity to be released, how will you be involved and what type of  support will you offer her?
