The things you take for granted…
- quality pads and/or tampons
- owning a new pair of panties
- This is a huge luxury while incarcerated! You can be at a constant disadvantage since clothes must be washed by hand and hung to dry.
- sports bra or any bra are VERY expensive from canteen and are VERY LOW quality. These typically don’t last the duration of your sentence.
These simple luxuries were stripped from me upon my entry into ‘the system’, but my dignity and self esteem were restored through the love of Mardi Bras. 😊
