From the Paper:

"Estelle v. Gamble relates to the medical issues available for women inside the prison systems. Although the case did not directly qualify as a woman-specific case, following its ruling, prisons began to set the guideline standards from this case as for providing adequate medical care for incarcerated women with medical conditions. The primary fact, the researcher asserts, behind this case is the fact it brought the medical attention needed to ensure the prisons provided proper medical care to prisoners who needed treatment. The Supreme Court's ban on cruel and unusual punishment initially intended to prevent physical mutilation and torture."
