Over the last three decades, the number of women in prison has grown by 700% – yep, 700%. But prisons aren't equipped to properly rehabilitate its fastest growing population. Many women in prison get sentenced hundreds of thousands of miles away from their children, give birth in shackles, and are watched in showers by male guards.
That's why #cut50 launched the Dignity for Incarcerated Women campaign in 2017. We've been fighting for dignity ever since, and have already passed dignity laws in ten states.
Do you believe incarcerated women have the right to give birth in safe conditions, see their children, and not be seen by male guards in states of undress? We do. Join us in demanding dignity for incarcerated women!
