Abstract

Decades after a government report on deep inequity in the vocational offerings of the nation's criminal-justice system, little has changed.

The Government Accountability Office did not mince words in the top line of a 1980 report to Congress on inequitable treatment of women in prison: “Women in correctional institutions are not provided comparable services, educational programs, or facilities as men prisoners.”
