Refinery29 you should investigate how Waupun correctional institution deals with the health of the inmates and how they treat inmates of different races. How the guards there are racist and treat inmates of different races different then others and how they treat inmates in general. Wisconsin prisons in general. Hope it makes the list but I’m not holding my breath :) thanks though!

I think america needs to rethink its prison system. It would be far more effective if inmates could absolve an apprenticeship or finish school during their time in prison. This is normal in other countries like germany and works really well.

Well at least its only for those who try their absolute hardest to redeem themselves. It amazes me that prison is full of sick fucks and thats excluding the inmates. How people that are just as bad as those criminals get prison guard jobs is disgusting.

I would never have thought that prison could be that bad, my mom served 6 years in Lowel correctional, I feel so bad that she and the other inmates would have had to deal with such degrading circumstances. That’s not fixing the problem if anything it makes it worse.

There could so easily be ONLY woman guards at women’s correctional facilities and ONLY male guards at male correctional facilities but that’s too much to ask for isn’t it. Women are taken advantage of just because of their situation. No woman should ever have to be scared to take a shower, or to wonder if they’ll get their feminine products, or to even say no. It’s disgusting that a place that is meant for “change” is such a toxic and unsafe environment for women. Sad that the male guards don’t know how to control themselves nor were taught how to treat and respect women.

The world we live in today is that we know about all these issues so do the necessary stakeholders, and we protest, complain and try to do what we can but nothing is ever dealt with, because corruption is more important than human dignity, yet they wonder why - the crime rate increases - the amount of women in prisons are increasing - suicide increases Etc.

This is another example of over kill. It begins with kids having mental needs but on vastly different levels. The kids are placed in psychiatric wards regardless of what they'll need, with kids that have far worse issues. My daughter was placed in such an institution at 13 for cutting. Once admitted she had to deal with kids who had tried to murder their families. The environment was inappropriate and not helpful to her at all. It took me 2 years of fighting the system to get her home. By then she was more traumatized than she was when she began cutting. The prison system is not working and an escalation of what went wrong on the very basic level of offering help. It's no wonder women being incarcerated has increased. It starts with children and youth service. It gets worse from there.

Why are male guards allowed in female prisons at all? It’s so disgusting, no matter who the woman is or what crime she committed, she is paying for it locked away. That doesn’t mean she should be raped or sexually abused by male officers. Sick. Open your eyes America.

I don't think that it's only about women, there is an increase of incarcerated women, but men aren't doing any better. True, they don't need as many sanitary product but they are also put down by the system and are rarely able to stay clean. This video does show the flaws in the system very well, but I believe everyone deserve ethical treatment and the support for reentering the society

'Mental health issues', 'domestic violence' and 'sexual abuse', of course women are NEVER to blame for their own fuck ups! It's always either nature's fault or a man's fault yet the women who think like that resent men who think they are nothing but overgrown children. I would bet much worse goes on in men's prisons but who gives a damn?

In Sweden all prisons provide working programs for college and other trades that people have options to take while incarcerated and it makes it less likely for the person to reoffend I know these programs cost more But if you equal out the less inmates that reoffend then you are all in all saving money and helping people gain confidence in getting an actual job and not go back to doing illegal things
