For the Oxygen Channel

Award-nominated Daughters Left Behind was the premiere episode of the Oxygen series Who Cares About Girls? Written and produced by Colette, and hosted by Lisa Ling, Daughters Left Behind delves into the difficult, often tragic lives of children of incarcerated moms.

From Baltimore to the nation’s heartland, and all the way to Australia, Colette and Lisa went behind bars to reveal how some penal systems dispassionately punish not only offenders, but their innocent children. It’s a powerful and emotional story that illuminates how some cultures recognize the mother-child bond as crucial to both family, and society at large.
