Demand Dignity for Incarcerated Women!

Dignity isn’t a privilege, it’s a right — even, and especially, in prison. Yet in prisons across the country, pregnant women are still forced to endure inhumane treatment like  solitary confinement and being shackled during childbirth.

Everyone acknowledges that we need to change the inhumane, unequal, and unjust policies around how incarcerated women and incarcerated pregnant women in Pennsylvania are treated. Now we have a real chance to take a positive step toward restoring humanity and dignity to women behind bars in PA.

Tell your Pennsylvania Senators to pass Dignity for Incarcerated Women!

    Dear Senator,

    No incarcerated woman should be neglected or deprived of their fundamental rights and dignity. I urge you to support the Dignity for Incarcerated Women bill. If passed it will:

    • Ensure incarcerated women in PA are no longer subject to invasive strip searches or harmful interactions with male corrections personnel.
    • Change the way pregnant women are treated while incarcerated, limiting the use of restraints and restrictive housing throughout the entirety of the pregnancy. 
    • Ensure pregnant women are given proper food and dietary supplements
    • Allow for a newborn baby to remain with their mother for up to 72 hours post delivery.
    • Provide a sufficient supply of feminine hygiene products at no extra cost
