Thank you for spreading this awareness---yet another reason to vote for Dr. Jill Stein, as with all of the most critical issues---she earnestly addresses prison reform, women's and equal rights. Thanks Rose----this post deserves a **************Green Star Shower for being informative and enlightening.

Noted. Thanks, Rose.
This was done at a Freedom Works conference? I understand that to be a far right-wing organization. So, that sort of shocked me. So, both parties are now taking on prison reform? Certainly would be a very good thing if true.

Only old white men seem to be exempt from this screwed up system.

Our society is indeed sick, sick, sick. I fear that it may have passed the point of no return - but maintain hope that we can still change this nation's direction via peaceful and (more or less) legal means.

Good evening and thank you for this article - which I read and noted- besides the war of drugs and war on poverty being part of reason so many more woman have been sent to jail in recent years -----it is also THE WAR ON WOMAN AND their rights- the new republic rules and regulations in towns cities and states require that a woman who has a miscarriage be arrested -charged with the death of her unborn baby and sentenced to jail for years and GOD FORBID she finds a doctor to perform an abortion because she was raped by a family member or criminal- and found herself pregnant- she will be there for life -how cruel and stupid can you get ---=SHAME ON THOSE IGNORANT REPUGS-- wake up AMERICA and get rid of these do nothing holier than thou liars ---and elect some one with common sense ---sincerely KAY M.
