Patricia O’Brien

Dr. Patricia O’Brien, a Professor of Social Work at University of Illinois-Chicago, believes that women should not be put in prison and that women’s prisons should be shut down. She believes that the only reason women are in prison is because they are marginalized and disrespected in society not because they are criminals.
