    In 1918, shortly after her 18th birthday, Nina McCall was told to report to the local health officer to be examined for sexually transmitted infections. Confused and humiliated, Nina did as she was told, and the health officer performed a hasty (and invasive) examination and quickly diagnosed her with gonorrhea. Nina McCall was one of many women unfairly imprisoned by the US government throughout the 20th century. The government locked up tens, probably hundreds, of thousands of women and girls - usually without due process - simply because officials suspected these women were prostitutes, carrying STIs, or just "promiscuous."
