    Sorry I was in a hurry.

    I went to work at an all male prison, I was tghe third female to ever work directly with the offenders.I was placed with a male officer for training, he was unhappy about female working the floor with the offenders. At meal time we were strip searching the offenders and the office I was with shoved me and told me to stand by facing the wall with my back towards the offenders. I told the officer no that I was going to do my job, at this point he started yelling at me that prison is no place for a women to work and I should be home barefoot and pregnant.
