Female Transgender Prisoners Ask To Move Out of Male Prisons

At California's Institution for Men in Chino, 78 female transgender prisoners live among more than 3,500 men. The prisoners live in shared spaces and bunk beds. Many live in fear of sexual assault and would prefer to be transferred to female prisons per their rights. According to the justice department, 35% of transgender people individuals report cases of sexual assault by other prisoners or prison staff. LGBTQ advocates note these numbers could be higher. At Chino, most trans women have requested transfers but have been denied or asked about their security concerns. What do you think about the safety of transgender persons and the changes that need to be made?
