The National Women’s Law Center and the Rebecca Project for Human Rights: Mothers Behind Bars

The National Women’s Law Center and the Rebecca Project for Human Rights new report, Mothers Behind Bars explores the egregious practice of shackling women during childbirth and other important issues affecting pregnant and parenting women—the vast majority of whom are non-violent, first-time offenders. In the report, each state is graded on whether it has adequate policies—or any policies at all—on prenatal care, shackling, and family-based drug treatment as an alternative to incarceration. Twenty states and the District of Columbia receive overall failing grades. The report also identifies steps that the federal government could take to improve conditions of confinement for women in federal facilities, including prisons and immigration detention.

Please download the full Mothers Behind Bars report today to learn more about the issues facing pregnant and parenting women behind bars at both the state and federal level. If you have questions or would like a hard copy of the report, please contact Stephanie Drahan at sdrahan(at)nwlc.org
