Quote of the Day 11/13/2013

I have heard people comment that incarcerated women are simply bad and deserve prison time. What the general public may not realize is that the typical woman behind bars is nonviolent and has been assessed with a need for substance abuse treatment. Many women in prison are mothers. At one time, they were girls, mostly victims of abuse, without access to resources that would help them recover.
