1970·[San Francisco, Sacramento, Santa Cruz]
[San Francisco, Sacramento, Santa Cruz]: [Women Against Prisons, Women's Prison Coalition / Women's Prisoner Support Group], 1970. Three handbills, Single long leaf, 14 x 8.5 inches, bi-lingual recto and verso texts, about 325 English words, illustrations, one fold-line, corners bear scotch tape, some corner creasing. Three related handbills protesting a new prison for women that focuses on Behavior Modification. "Que' es 'behavior modification'? (here served up in a special unit for the inmates the guards think need some modifying). The English text defines it as "adjustment" and "punishment.. under the guise of therapy" and "segregation [of] women who do not conform to prison authorities' definition of a proper prisoner or a well-behaved woman." Inmates are "united in opposition," and evidently there is concerted outmate opposition, for it is said that this is "the third time in the last few years the administration.. has attempted to open" such a center.
