I agree that the abuse to women from male prison guards is uncalled for and despicable. The programs seem to help as well. My issue with this episode is that there seems to be a subtle undertone of " the poor women in prison." Drug charges, child neglect, armed robbery all put these women there. Also the random unnecessary race statistic was not needed, if you are going to support women, there is no need to add the idea of separation with throwing in a mention of race.

The crazy thing is that I use re-usable cloth pads and a menstrual cup. They last for years and years and are so easy to take care of. Reusable menstrual products get rid of the extreme cost of disposable products, reduces so much waste world wide and is safer for the body. Yet so many people don't even know about reusable menstrual products at all. People will often think it's gross before even looking into it. If they all had their own reusable products, then they wouldn't have to rely on the staff when it's their time of the month. It's all just corruption.

That's more than you get in a mental hospital....you can't shave, no lotion, only combs, no conditioner, not even allowed to go outside everyday and if you can it's only for short periods, no makeup, etc. The inmates in the facility down the street had more freedom. In Not saying this is a bad idea, I think things like this should be integrated in other types of state facilities that need better programs as well. I think many people in prison probably have mental issues such as the video talked about so prison alone will not fix the issues. Overall this is a great program and other facilities should try this or similar programs like garden therapy out.

I don't know about all this. I have a hard time feeling sorry for these women because they "wear ill fitting blue tees" as the one prisoner said and have sex with gaurds for lip gloss. They aren't there to feel beautiful but that is what they are focusing their attention on. Then to talk about sexual harrassment and yet they are texting the guards after their release, it just shows them continuing to make poor choices. It is sad most of these women are mothers.

I still don’t know the right words to express my gratitude to the Great Dr. EMUA. After been diagnosed of HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2014, i was given so many health prescription and advice with no improvement, I totally lost hope, until i found testimonies of Great Dr. EMUA in an online research and on Facebook, Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about contacting him, but i later did and he opened up to me and told me what was involved and he started the remedies for my health. Thank God, i was cured from herpes by the herbal medication I received from him. I never thought that herpes can be cured, from the bottom of my heart I'm truly grateful,i pray you have long life so you can help many more people on earth with your herbal medical support, You can Email him via his email dremuahelphome@outlook.com or dremuahelphome@gmail.com for easy and fast communication you can also call or add him on whats-app with this number +15185546034, one thing i love most about DR EMUA is honestly

At first I wasn't sure what to thinking when I heard of beauty behind bars (yeah, if you break the law who should be punished); but I think programs that can help them get jobs so they can be productive in society, care for their child and keep them out of trouble is a really good thing. Most of them didn't seem horrible, they just made bad choices and they served their time. Some just need help so they can quit drugs and stay clean or get help for their mental health. If they can't get the help that they truly need or to prepared re-enter society (such as helping people to find a job), they will most likely just end up back in prison again. I noticed a lot of people lack skills that can be used for jobs and struggling to find a job (college and university is so expensive and no guarantee either these days. I heard stories of people who went into Nursing school and had a hard time finding a job); much less a job that makes enough to pay bills. I think learning skills can help many of people who are in prison and wanting to change or even prevent people from ending up in prison to begin with. I agree, nobody deserved to be abused. That is just wrong and a criminal act right there. Those guards need to be punished and not get away with that. One guard made a threat and suddenly that woman died right after? How is he not on trial for murder? Unfortunately many people abuse power and get away with it.

The American system is a joke and a lot of it starts with the complete disregard for education. Federal and state funding is pulled from schools because their scores are low so then staff has to more with less. Now these kids can't get as good of an education which gives them poor job prospects and then leads them to more and more desperate ways to earn money. So some 18 year old gets caught selling drugs or stealing and ends up in prison for several years because of ridiculous mandatory minimums. Because most of the prisons are far more focused on punishment rather than rehabilitation that kid doesn't gain any skills. Once they're out they now have to find a job but many places won't hire someone with a record regardless of what it's for, and others won't hire them because they have no skills and/or experience. So now they have to turn to more crime to try and survive. Rinse and repeat. And these prisons being mostly for profit instead of strictly run by the government gives no incentive to try and keep people out of the system. And since ex-cons aren't allowed to vote we are losing a larger and larger portion of people who can't participate in the decisions that can sometimes affect them drastically which just keeps this whole disgusting system from having any kind of reform.

I agree that my programs such as these are what helps keeping people out of the prison systems yet not only for the women men are having the same issues. One of the big issues is prisons cutting programs and the access to basic needs so that prison officials can get more money then lie about it.

Like sexuality, or race, or gender, some things are given to us when we are born, that we can't help, fuck make up off I'm not talking about that, but no woman deserves not to have a fucking tampon or pad, or shower, fuck i love being a man, but not right now... scummy corrupt cunts.

This is true . I have been to jail for a little while for the first time in my life and it was so scary . The guards when I was In jail when they came to give me meds would always sexualize having to open my mouth to check I took them one time they said if I didn’t open wide enough they’d have to take me to a room and have me bend over and check all my holes . I felt humiliated and didn’t know how to respond I laughed along but I was scared they seemed really serious letting me know they could do this . One of them said he wished he would have known me before he met his wife as he gave a print out of Roman numerals I didn’t even ask him for I simply asked if he know what number was a certainnumeral I saw in the Bible it was weird but if I spoke up about that in jail well who would have done anything these girls were threatening to beat me up in there and one time it got out of control and the guard said that they might not get to me in time if they did gang up on me and that I would be charged as well and spend more time in jail. He tried to scare me saying he’s had to mop pools of blood of the floor before . Jail is hell it sucks when you end up there for an unfortunate situation

Thank you for this expose. It brings out multiple feelings in my heart. First, I realize this is prison and that it is punishment for the crime that you have done, BUT the abuse is HORRIBLE! If you can give someone just a glimmer of hope you can change their outlook on themselves, especially those who WANT to reenter society. I love this Beauty program. It gives HOPE for their future. Let these women learn to SHINE and you give them PURPOSE! It's how you change the confidence level and makes one more determined to SUCCEED!

I think this is great! Get women motivated to get into clean and healthy hobbies and keep them away from the systematic oppression of repeat offenders. I do think this should only apply to nonviolent criminals because I still highly agree murders and rapist should not be release. Too many people already get away with murder and rape and I don’t think it’s acceptable to give them a second chance when they will never be able to change that.
