This discussion focuses on gender specific issues involving women in our criminal justice system, specifically imprisonment. After completing the assigned activities, watch the following you tube video: “Women Prisoners: No Right to be a Mother presented by the Clayman Institute” A presentation from Stanford University's Clayman Institute on the issues of women prisoners which includes a panel discussion with former inmates. After watching the video, discuss some of the realities of incarcerated women and their experiences while in custody and your thoughts on whether women should go to prison just like men. In your discussion post think about: What are the characteristics of an adult male offender as opposed to those of a female adult offender? What are differences and similarities between both? What are some of the challenges to providing effective programs for adult offenders? Should programs for females be different than those for men? If so, what programs might be more effective for the female offender?
