Female Chain Gang

369549 27: Female jail inmates are chained together as they bury cadavers at Maricopa County's pauper's graveyard in Phoenix, Arizona May 17, 2000. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio began the first female chain gang. With a reputation of being the nation's toughest law enforcement officer, Sheriff Arpaio said he does not believe in discrimination. As a result, the women in Arpaio's jail are treated exactly like the men. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Liaison)
