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.

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.

It's disgusting how the male officers will give women stuff they need/want only if they have sex or flirt with them.😡 Or even WATCH the women taking showers. Wtf is wrong with these places. It's sad how they limit stuff that women need everyday just because they are there and having no privacy while they are in the showers.

The thing about female prisons being bad is just completely one sided and you seem to not be taking into account that it is prison.. it is a place of punishment as well as rehab... And men's prisons are usually worse (not saying they all are)

Natalie the weathered white lady is so ASMRy to me. I know that’s weird but her style of talking just tickles me
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. People WE need to WAKE UP AND DO SOMETHING

These women are here to serve time for what they have done. They shouldn’t get to have fun. They should look at prison as something they never want to come back too because they might not care about coming back if there having fun.

think that its true: if you dont give them tools and methods to rehabilitate, then they wont change. A simple haircut can change the way you act and see yourself. If you feel yourself worthless? then you treat your life as worthless too

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.

women are 10x worse than men are in prison...i would never work in a women's prison. Dont break the law and you could shower comfortably and provide things for yourself in your own home. Fyi abuse happens outside prison walls. Not trying to be a bitch i think its great having th programs to help these women, but it all still comes down to following the law

Prisons in Tx are not like that. Guards are encouraged to turn each other in, a sexual act with a prisoner gives you 5-10 years for the officers.

At the same time, I have so much respect for them and wish every single woman in this video and in prison right now the best and I pray things get better.

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?

This is incredible! It’s so awesome that cosmetology did this for these women. It’s crazy how beauty can not only change outward appearance but also alter inside feelings towards self and others as well. However, it is very sad about what is happening to those women behind bars. It is great that you shined a light on those issues!
