5 Shocking Facts About Females In Prison

The likes of Orange is the New Black and other stories have glorified women going to prison, but they also help to show off the realities these women tend to face while imprisoned in the government’s judicial system. Often times, the women incarcerated behind bars tend to face far more atrocities, including bad treatment and sexual abuse, while they are locked up. Sometimes, female prisoners are treated with far less respect and don’t receive the necessary medical attention when it is required. These women tend to be scarred for life. Here are 5 shocking facts about women in prison.

5. Women Prisons
South Africa is currently the home of more prisons designed specifically for women than anywhere else in the entire world. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these are inhumane, and the women criminals that call them home are abused and degraded.

4. Assault
Women in prison tend to face assault far more often than men who are incarcerated. You would think this comes from other inmates, but the terrible fact of the matter is that guards assault more women prisoners than anything else.

3. Piper Kerman
The story of Piper Kerman, the star of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, is actually a true story – to some extent. She spent 13 months behind bars, and now speaks out for those women still trapped behind them.

2. Healthcare
While the healthcare in most prisons isn’t actually that great to begin with, women’s prisons actually have it worse. Those suffering from hepatitis, HIV, cancer, anemia, and other common problems tend to be left untreated, making these prisons extremely unhygienic.

1. First Prisoners
The first female prisons were designed and built in the United States in 1869 in Indiana. The females here were unable to rectify their lives due to the harsh treatment they received under the guards.
