Part 2 of Women in Solitary Confinement: Sent to Solitary for Reporting Sexual Assault

Part 2 of my piece on women in solitary confinement is now up on Solitary Watch:

It seems absurd that a person who has been sexually assaulted would be punished for speaking up, especially since prison policy prohibits sexual contact between staff and the people whom they guard. Yet, in many women’s prisons, those who report rape and other forms of sexual assault by prison personnel are often sent to solitary confinement.
