Special needs of women in prison will be watched over by a special program established by the Legislature. It’s a program born from a conference in Washington a few years ago – a conference attended by the deputy director of women’s health in the Department of Corrections and some women legislators. Out of that conference comes a law specifying a top department official will oversee special programs for women’s needs. The bill is awaiting the signature of Governor Holden before it becomes law.
