Answer: QUESTION: how to find documentation about AZ women prisoners' rebellion from 1980s?


Another librarian searched several newspapers from the period via ProQuest as well as Google News Archive. She found mentions of the prison, but nothing about resistance by prisoners.

I searched Arizona's legal cases via LexisNexis using the terms < (woman OR women) AND prison! AND buren > between 1980 and 1990. None of the three results was about a woman prisoner.

So I'm afraid there's not much out there that's via web searches. I suggest contacting the Arizona Historical Society, Arizona universities, or Arizona prison activist groups as a next step. I assume you've already done the last.
