Olympia peace activist Patty talks about her participation in a federal
lawsuit to change conditions in the Olympia City Jail. She was arrested in
November 2007 during anti-war protests that shut down military transport
through the Port of Olympia. Patty was one of 40 women who held a sit in
at the port gate. The lawsuit came from their treatment in Olympia City
Jail where they were held for hours in their underwear and subjected to
other humiliating treatment. Patty talks about options people may have
when abused in jail.
