  2. Yeah, I definitely agree it’s a huge issue that I think is a huge reason there is such a prevalence of mental issues among prisoners. I read the Human Rights Watch paper on women in prison and it was so sad to hear the individual reports of the “newbies” getting cornered in rooms and guards ganging up on them. What is even worse and prevalent is the name-calling in women’s prisons where they reported that the women would be referred to as “bitches” and “sluts” and treated like animals. Women are allowed to put up a cloth while they are changing in their cells, but the report emphasized the right of guards to rip it down as they so often do leaving little privacy for the most private of needs for women. This constant psychological sexual torture mixed with the threat of rape breaks women down as there are little resources to turn to.
