There was a marathon of the MSNBC documentary series Lockup this past weekend, and one of the episodes focused on the L.A. County Jail system including a facility for female prisoners (the majority of whom are incarcerated on drug-related charges). Interestingly, in this prison system, women and men are treated equally — women aren't given special treatment for, well, being women: "feminine" accessories like bows or makeup are seen as items of privilege, and menstruation, at least while in solitary confinement, is seen as a medical emergency.
