If prison is meant to rehabilitate, how can that happen when guards and the system are creating more dysfunction? Get female guards, first of all. Men cannot be trusted.

It's good to have a program like this for women in prison to learn a trade but do the inmates/clients get these services for free???!!!

honestly, i’m no feminist, i’m actually a conservative in my own words but i agree that men shouldn’t be in a women’s prison as guards. same with women being in a men’s prison. for one, women are physically weaker than men which makes those who are incarcerated and at the mercy of guards easily susceptible to abuse and rape. this could also cause emotional trauma to women who suffered from these problems beforehand, as statistics show that many of the women behind bars suffer from past abuse and mental illness. As for allowing women in men’s prisons, if men shouldn’t be allowed in women’s prisons then it’s only fair that it’s the same way vise versa.

I know this program is supposed to be a good thing... but it’s just sad to me. Why do women _need_ this kind of stuff? Why does society make women literally _need_ makeup and beauty products? I understand that women in prison have many things taken away from them, and this is giving at least one part of their old lives back... but we need to give _other_ things back to women to make them feel at least a little more normal, not this. This is a negative part of society that is now becoming more and more necessary, even in prison. This is just my opinion.

This is not what I thought it’d be. I always wonder why people act like it’s so I just to put people in prison. So just because they didn’t physically hurt someone, they shouldn’t be in prison/jail? So y’all basically want no consequences for crimes. In most Cases, no one is forcing them to choose drugs over their kids. At the end of the day it comes down to your choice. If they are given all the tools in the world, they still have to make the choice to do the right thing. And also, to those that are saying men get tf out of female prisons.. maybe you should become a CO. I’m guessing it’s not a job that a lot of women want. These women aren’t here because they were forced. Maybe if there were harsher consequences, people would think twice before committing a crime. And why does race always have to play into it? You realize that majority of America is white and the majority of prisons is ethnic. So what’s that saying. Even tho you refuse to believe it, there are extremely underprivileged whites people too. It’s not about your race or where you were born. It’s what you make of it.

Thank you for this video. A reminder that keeping a person in prison for a year cost between 30K + 60K. This money would be so much better spent on Rehabilitation of drug offenders and mental health services. Legalization of drugs and removing money from the equation would solve many of our judicial Systems many problems. The way that human beings are treated in prison is disgraceful. Drug addicted, survivors of abuse and mentally ill offenders are in a place they don't belong that just encourages recidivism. Remember at this time of year to think of those who are less fortunate than yourself that are in prison or homeless. Imagine how easy it is for many people who live on the edges of society to lose one piece of their survival puzzle and end up homeless jobless and on their way to prison. Being low income homeless and being an addict ARE NOT CRIMES. Solving our countries gigantic judicial system mess will take a miracle, let's hope for it.

I love this. I mean, when you really think about it, a violent and rough and bad environment will not help to change people into better functioning members of society. In most prisons, people will walk in with a small drug charge and endure violence and horrible treatment while behind bars. Which in turn, leaves them being a more violent person, or a broken person. How can that possibly help a person change into a better version of themselves? Yes, prison should not by any means be a luxury, but I believe there is a lot of room for improvement to better help the inmates. These prisons with cosmetology programs are taking a small step in the right direction, in my opinion.

How does that correspond to when they get out? What jobs are they able to get, all of them cant go to beauty related fields can they? Fact of the matter is I dont really see how this at the end of the day helps, it feels more of a place where they can get out of facing a shitty circumstance that they are in, that they put themselves in( not talking about the abuse part no one deserves that). And a person who is not willing to change themselves internally is not going to change. And its weird to say its because now that they have a beauty salon area that caused this sudden will to change because beauty school existed before they did their crime and the people in this prison beauty school still need to get some sort of certificate to work.

Makeup is not self care. It does nothing for you except make you prettier. shampoo, razors, toothpaste, face wash, these are self care. You do not need makeup to survive. Makeup does not make you a better person either. If you are in prison, makeup should not be something you are that worried about. Woman are so self absorbed these days man.

I was in a county jail where there was definitely men co's almost all of them were young men some were straight forward and didn't flirt but there was a few who would flirt and go the extra mile for pretty girls. I definitely have some first hand stories but when your in jail and you know u can get things you need or extra privilege for flirting you do what you gotta do I can't say anyone ever made any sexually advances but I did have a co wanting to take me alone on a field trip is what he said I got scared after thinking about it for awhile and didnt go. I wanted to leave lock up so bad but once I realized things could go very south and there was nothing I would have been able to do, I didn't wanna go but he was known for doing that kind of thing and I heard he had sex with one of the inmates I think once she got out of jail.

I’m sure that basic rights are food water and fresh air at least once a day. Not make up. you guys need to realize that these woman are criminals. They aren’t at some sorority. You know who needs the money going to these products : woman in shelters who have been sexually physically abused. Children in foster care. Children in public schools. They broke the law. So the deserve to pay the price not be given make up to have individuality. I can agree tho that the people in charge of the prisons and the people running them are some of the worst. So even then! The money being used for that make up should be used to hire better employees in the prisons. Or do more back ground checks or make sure they go through a mental health screening too.

ok look, learning cosmetology is good cause then u have prospects when u go outside. But to have this underlying narrative that women struggle so much in prison i stupid, i think we can all agree that a mens prison is 1000 times worse and more horrible, especially more violent. Cosmetology is fine, but to have beauty is stupid. Having your hair and make up done is a privilage something that theses women gave up when they broke the law, regardless how small the crime. Regarding sexual ttrade for things like tampons and makeup is dumb, that needs to be fixed for tampons, but for makeup no. If u wanna have makeup nah f off. definatly need to fix the tampons and the flirting with officers tho, that is highly digusting. I would have focused more on that instead of the 'girls need make up blah', perhaps change the title because thats the vibe ur giving. would have more respect to this video if it focused on sexual asult and officer manipulation if it showed how this affects everyone, men and women in prison, because prison is horrible for everyone, sexual assult is rampant for both genders in prison and has to be addressed.

She ended up going to court only because 4 other women had been assaulted by this same officer. She ended up getting a 1.4 million dollar settlement and she has nothing to show for it other than being completely mentally and physically fucked up.
