Treatment of Men Versus Women Incarcerated

timer Asked: Aug 29th, 2014

Question description

The numbers of women behind bars continue to grow. The types of crimes they commit differ compared to men. The three strikes laws are funneling in more women than ever before, and they are facing longer sentences. There has been little public discussion about the dramatic increase of women in the prison system.

Using both academically valid internet resources and your textbook as references, briefly discuss the history of females in prison.

In your paper, consider the following:

  • What major differences do you find in the treatment of men versus women while incarcerated?
  • Looking at female incarceration both historically and today, what changes in treatment do you find?
  • Is there still a gap between men's and women's treatment while incarcerated? Why or why not?

Assignment should be 2-3 pages in length.
