The Dignity for Incarcerated Women Act

 

I'm honored to have contributed over a dozen of my prison nursery images to this short video narrated primarily by Alicia Keys about the Dignity for Incarcerated Women Act. This bill, sponsored by Senators Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren, takes into account the special needs of incarcerated WOMEN. Women are increasing the ranks of the incarcerated but the prison system was developed with the needs for men, not taking into account the realities of reproduction: childbearing, care taking of children, menstruation.
