silhouette of persons hand
Women in prison 
Women in prison  we go through a lot.
Women in prison we don't get the proper
Healthcare 
Women in prison fight in cafeteria 
And women in prison we need to
 support each other

Women in prison flirt with
Police staff
Women in prison get sexual abused
Women in prison get pregnant
And women in prison get seperated
From our children.

Women in prison build friendships 
Women in prison can work on our  
Barriers
Women in prison can make a 
Difference within ourselves
Women in prison are still human 
And………….
Not all women in prison are bad people

This poem is well-written. Women in prison are often sexualized and seen as lesser to the prison guards. Women are horribly mistreated in the prison systems. A prime example is pregnant women. Pregnant women are often bound by handcuffs during birth, only to have at most one look at their child before being separated.
