Like many women who get caught in the system, Harp-Harlow endured a childhood of trauma

“The single mother of five has been in and out of the criminal justice system since she was 12. Like many women who get caught in the system, Harp-Harlow endured a childhood of trauma. She says she was molested at 6 and then was raped and had a child when she was 13. She’s battling drug addiction.

Nearly 40% of women who are incarcerated in America have a history of sexual violence. And once an inmate is in the system, it’s hard for her to stay out. About 70% of female inmates return to the system within five years.”
