 6/6/11 Health Disparities and Incarcerated Women Braithwaite, Treadwell & Arriola (2005) Discusses how for years in the criminal justice system  women have been underrepresented, because of the initial  creation of a justice system by men that was suited for men,  and was never properly structured enough to suit women  This leads to the forgotten nature of the feelings, and  diverse needs

 6/6/11 Statistics African American and Hispanic women make  up the fastest-growing prison population.  Approximately 66 % of women confined in  local jails and state and federal prisons are  either Black, Hispanic, or members of other  non-White ethnic groups It is a proven fact that women are more likely  to be the primary care takers of children, and  over a million children in the United States  have mothers that are in prison.   The differences between ethnic groups is that

 6/6/11 Interpretation As the system continues to affect people’s lives  today, many wonder why the criminal justice  system is blind to this dynamic and to the horrific  price that society pays when we simply incarcerate  and do not rehabilitate one’s mental state.    In my opinion, I support these arguments because  over time it seems that the main focus of  corrections is to keep the ones that have committed  crimes away from society without any means of  trying to better their chances of becoming  rehabilitated, thus making inmates, especially  female inmates become “invisible”.
