Sexual Violence in United States Prisons

LGBTIQ individuals in the U.S. prison system are exposed to overwhelmingly high rates of sexual violence and little or no protection from the systems and policies in place (Just Detention International). These resources review the problem of sexual violence in prison, the experiences of some LGBTIQ prisoners, and recommendations for policy changes to protect basic human rights.
