The number of female prisoners has increased, making it imperative to create prisons specifically for women. In the past, prisons were used to punish male offenders who broke the law and caused harm to society. The situation has changed, though, and now women are treated equally to males in all spheres of life, as seen by the presence of women in prison. Only building a prison does not fulfil all of the government's obligations. An inmate should be required to get proper hygiene and sanitation care. Despite having committed a crime, prisoners are still entitled to fundamental human rights. Prison is a facility designed to punish offenders for their misdeeds. Nowadays, the word "jail" is gender-neutral. Prisons used to be exclusively for men, but in today's socially and economically developed age, they are a building for all genders, and anybody who commits a crime is welcome. Now, it would be incorrect to suggest that crime is a male phenomenon. The fact that there are fewer female prisoners than male convicts does not exclude them from receiving gender-specific treatment. They frequently do, however, encounter numerous challenges and trying circumstances that are not very favourable for them because older prisons were created for men, not women.
Through the means of this paper various provision related to the rights of women in prisoner has been discussed and what are the challenges and issues faced by women prisoners are also discussed.
