Women Prisoners in Marin County Jail

About This Item

KPIX Eyewitness News report from March 18th 1974 by Mike Lee at the Marin County Jail featuring interviews with women prisoners and an administrator, who discuss rehabilitation programs. As Lee puts it in an editorial: "If there is any doubt as to whether a rehabilitation program is needed between 80 to 90 women are sentenced to the Marin County Jail each year: 40% of them have no high school education, 50% have no job skills, 25% have no job experience. Nearly half are involved in drugs and 75% of them have children on the outside." One inmate explains that as she has experience of the "dope trip," she'd like to work as a drug rehabilitation counselor. Also includes views of jail cells.
