The Danish Minister of Justice Karen Hækkerup is calling for building an all female jail in Denmark. The female prisoners are currently being harassed too much by the male inmates and therefore limited in their activities and mobility inside the jails. So what is the number of female prisons in Denmark?
A whooping 75 prisoners! In the USA there is more than 200.000 women in prisons and local jails.
The disadvantage of a new all female jail in Denmark will be serving the time far away from family and home.
