Transcript WOMEN IN ACTION/COUNTY JAIL Caucus members Clara Willing and Barbara Runge accompanied WIA volunteers on one of their visits to women prisoners in the Harris County Jail, and shared with the policy council meeting July 17 their personal observations of its Inhumane and degrading conditions. Clara reported that, as a result of a near-riot in Tank 2 (where two women prisoners had had miscarriages in a week's time), the WIA visits have been temporarily halted by Jail administrators. All the women in the Jail are being punished by depriving them of their one hour a week of contact with the outside world—one more Item to add to the long list of brutalities inflicted on these women. The council discussed various possibilities for action In this area, though no specific proposal was voted on—watch this space for developments! And remember, we should all be writing our county commissioners to deplore conditions and treatment of prisoners in the Jail. (See p.3 for their names and where to address your letter.)
