Each of the stories focused on the conditions of incarceration for women in California prisons. Women are the fastest growing population of prisoners in the United States, and females make up 10,000 of those currently incarcerated in California. The stories looked at the inadequate health care in state prisons -- particularly the Central California Women's Facility and Valley State Prison for Women, both in Chowchilla, California -- that exacerbated inmates' problems with chronic and terminal illnesses and lead, in several cases to unnecessary deaths.
