WJP is pleased to announce the release of Incarcerated Women: Pregnancy, Childbirth & Shackling, which highlights the dehumanizing and deeply harmful practices endured by pregnant and birthing people in our prisons and jails.
The publication’s content is informed by the experiences and expertise of currently and formerly incarcerated women as well as statistics gathered from a range of sources, including federal government data and academic research initiatives.
We hope this piece contributes to critical organizing led by women and gender expansive people directly impacted by incarceration to end shackling, advance reproductive justice, and transform our criminal legal system.
