  • Oh my!!
  • "This is the way to our main cell."
  • "Get on the ground!"
  • "Please sir, I don't have the money yet!"
  • The Prison Reform
  • ??????????
  • "Do exactly as I instruct or you will be punished!"
  • One day in 1841, while agreeing to teach a Sunday school at a jail, Boston women Dorothea Dix was shocked to view the conditions of the inmates.
  • The Prison Reform
  • How can I better improve the life of those in prison?
  • After Dorothea taught Sunday school at a jail, she decided to visit more jails of see if any of them displayed cruel and harsh conditions towards the prisoners as the other jail did.
  • The Prison Reform
  • "Thank you for your help Miss. Dix!"
  • Dorothea also decided to visit prisons in which held those who were mentally ill. These individuals were crowded in dirty prisons and were also treated cruelly. She felt that these people and others deserved to be treated better and with that Dorothea began a reform to do so.
  • The Prison Reform
  • Put an end to cruel punishments!
  • Change prison conditions!
  • For two years, Dorothea had dedicated an immense amount of time researching information on the terrible things she had seen while visiting many prisons and how the prisoners were treated.
  • Hospitals for the mentally ill were eventually developed to put an end to the cruel ways people with metal illnesses were treated. They are now provided treatment and care instead of puishments.
  • "This is how people with a metal illness should be treated."
  • Dorothea Dix devoted the rest of her life campaigning for the prison reform and when she died in 1887, the government had established laws including that debtors could no longer go to prison. Some cruel punishments were also banned. Dorothea Dix left the legacy that anyone can lead society to change how they view different people and or topics. 
  • Fight for reform!
