Why are people,

pretending not to know that 

women imprisoned with 

males are facing 

heightened harm and assaults?

Why are seemingly intelligent 

women supporting this cause

....especially those with more education and wealth? 

Why are these women proudly 

and publically turning  their

 backs on the 

concerns and cries of other women?

I do not know what happened.

At some point in the last ten years, the most educated women decided that the cries and concerns of other women were beneath them. 

Not their issue. 

None of their concern.

Certainly not all. I have a bachelor's degree and train others myself. I'm honored to continue the fight for women and children's rights alongside authors, professors, entrepreneurs, lawyers, and doctors etc....

Even so, among the ranks, we've been discussing how many of the most educated women have abandoned others with fewer privileges and advantages in life.  The abandonment seems most apparent around issues involving: 

  • domestic violence, 
  • femicide, 
  • rape, 
  • crimes against women & children of war and conflict, 
  • female imprisonment, 
  • child safety 
When these issues are discussed, when all of the women aren't willing to fully submit and comply to male feelings and desires, they are assigned the label of some version of "hateful bigot" and there the conversation ends. 

Are some educated women communicating that leveling up prevents them from relating to women with different yet valid and real safety concerns?

Male Prisoners Harming Female Prisoners

The systemic abuse and violation of female prisoners is well-known by now.  But even people who keep phrases like "systemic abuse" in their lexicon and have extensive knowledge of this issue, are mute and make themselves scarce when this topic comes up. 

These stories around male prisoners raping female prisoners are making news on a regular and consistent basis now.  People who pride themselves on being well-informed can no longer pretend that they don't see it.  

At present, there are an estimated 200 more men awaiting transfer into the female estate just in the state of California.

Not even twelve years ago, if all of this landsliding oppression of women and girls were occurring in another country, the US would be talking pretty tough right now.  We'd at least be discussing sanctions. 

About News Sources

P.S.  Before you ask me why I link to certain publications, I get it. BUT, first this. Feel free to ask questions of:

  • Publications that serve women
  • Publications that usually serve liberals, progressives, democrats
  • Publications that provide content for activists/advocates
  • Publications that write for minoritized persons

Ask these folks why they choose not to write/cover/report on these issues.

Ask these folks if they know how to cover these issues without framing terrified women as "hateful" or "bigots"

Ask these folks if they know how to cover these issues without dismissive diversion tactics. (Guards rape women anyway so.....)

We MUST have some critical conversations. These conversations will require the voices of compassionate adults who desire safety for all and not safety for two or a few. 

Horrific ordeal of female inmate who says she was raped in prison by bearded, 6'2" trans cellmate who then perversely claimed to be the victim


Human beings are doing this work. Flawed ones, because that is the only size we come in. Flawed. 

All of us who do this work have gotten some things wrong.  Is it time for some folks to have a meeting with themselves about their empathy and compassion gap for female human beings with issues around safety, health, and respect for their female personhood?

Hurry, please!
