What was the world's first Women’s United States Prison?

Prior to 1837, women criminals were housed in the same facilities as males. The reason being there were very few women criminals at the time and it cost less than building a different facility. However, in Ossining, New York the very first women’s prison was built by the name of Mount Pleasant Female Prison.

Between 1873 and 1940, 17 prisons were built for women and then in the 1980’s and 1990’s there were 75 more women’s’ prisons built. Today, the prisons that are exclusive for women include Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee, Minnesota, Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, and the Washington Corrections Center for Women in Gig Harbor, Washington.
