Correctional Facilities for Women

Very troubling report about the status of women’s correctional facilities–female prisoners who are menstruating are not given sanitary pads or tampons. It is so very denigrating. Prisoners are prisoners because they broke the law, but they deserve basic human rights. I am going to see if my Women’s Studies students would do a drive to collect pads and tampons for their local correctional facility and for the women prisoners. If you are in a position to do so, please organize something for your county or state. Thank you.
