The Lost Lectures

Vicky Pryce

View the talk

It’s pretty extraordinary for an ex-offender to walk into a top government job just a few months after leaving jail. But then Vicky Pryce is no ordinary ex-offender. She spent nine weeks in prison for accepting points on her driving licence for her husband (former cabinet minister). Always one to find a silver lining, she wrote a book about her experience, ‘Prisonomics’, exploring the various costs of keeping women behind bars. She’ll be sharing her personal experience, talking economics, jailhouses and the importance of getting ex-offenders back into the workplace.
