#MeToo Behind Bars: When the Sexual Assaulter Holds the Keys to Your Cell

Society & Culture  (tags: inmates, incarceration, sexual assault, sexism, women )

- 183 days ago -

Sadly - there's a huge battle needed to tackle this. I wonder how far it is worse with privately-run prisons, which seem to have even less accountability.

The survivors of such violence must be enabled to make their voices heard - loud and clear. It will be the only way of changing sick & toxic behavioural norms in the justice system.

Would a first step be to remove responsibility for complaints process oversight to committees OUTSIDE the prisons?
