Mass incarceration is a tragic reality in the United States. Adding to this unfortunate experience is the overly punitive way women are treated while imprisoned. According to information cited on NPR, data shows that “in prison, discipline comes down hardest on women.” Additionally, Black girls and other younger women of color are especially at risk for future institutionalization. These topics and more, including parenting while incarcerated and the eugenic effects of imprisoning women of child-bearing age, will be explored at this symposium.
