Plea to CA Gov. Brown …
Women in Prisons Need Your Help!!!

Kim Kardashian West says she’s still laser-focused on the women she visited in a California prison over the weekend — so much so, she’s imploring the Governor to do his part for them.
Kim called on Gov. Jerry Brown to sign Assembly Bill 2550, which would restrict male prison guards’ interactions with female inmates. Kim said, “The women I met at CA Women’s Institution are still on my mind and in my heart.”
The bill would prohibit male correctional officers from conducting pat down searches on female prisoners, except in emergency situations — such as posing a risk of immediate harm to herself or others … or risk of escaping. It would also prevent male guards from entering areas where female prisoners are undressed … and force them to announce their presence in women’s housing units.
The woman I met at CA Women’s Institution are still on my mind and in my heart. I do hope @GovBrown will sign AB2550 to grant #DignityForIncarceratedWomen #cut50

The bill Kim’s referring to was drafted by a partisan group of Cali lawmakers. The State Assembly still has to vote on it, before it gets to the Governor’s desk.
