Between 2006-2010, 144 people were sterilized without consent in California’s women’s prisons. This atrocious human rights abuse was kept secret from the survivors and the public. Forced sterilizations are part of the long legacy of eugenics, reproductive and racialized violence, and social control of Black, Brown, Indigenous, and poor communities within and outside of US prisons and in ICE detention facilities.
