Prisons With Female Inmates

28 facilities in the Federal Bureau of Prisons house female inmates. The Federal Bureau of Prisons refers to the seven facilities that house only female inmates as the "Big Seven." The facilities are Federal Prison Camp, Alderson, in Alderson, West Virginia, Federal Prison Camp, Bryan, in Bryan, Texas, Federal Correctional Institution, Danbury, in Danbury Connecticut, Federal Correctional Institution, Dublin, in Dublin, California, Secure Female Facility, Hazelton, in Hazelton, West Virginia, and Federal Correctional Institution, Waseca, in Waseca, Minnesota; of these FCI Dublin also has one small male detention unit. Twenty one male BOP facilities also house female inmates, in either small satellite detention units or separate Federal Prison Camps. Of the regions of the United States defined by the Bureau of Prisons, two of the six regions have two female-only facilities, South Central Region and Mid-Atlantic Region; the Southeast Region no longer has a female-only facility due to the mission change of FCI Tallahassee in 2010.

Famous quotes containing the words prisons and/or female:

    Yes, it is the hour at which, long ago, I felt happy. What always awaited me then was a light and dreamless sleep. But something had changed because, with the wait for tomorrow, it is my cell that I have found. As if the familiar paths traced in the summer skies could lead to prisons as well as innocent slumbers.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    The same polarity of the male and female principle exists in nature; not only, as is obvious in animals and plants, but in the polarity of the two fundamental functions, that of receiving and penetrating. It is the polarity of earth and rain, of the river and the ocean, of night and day, of darkness and light, of matter and spirit.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)
