Ghislaine Maxwell, the disgraced girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein, is serving a 20-year sentence in prison for the crimes she committed against women with Epstein. Maxwell, 52, is completing her sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Tallahassee, Florida.
It has been reported that she is holding “etiquette” classes for female prisoners that allegedly include guidance on “moral” behavior.
You may want to let that sink in for a minute.
A flyer for the twice-a-week classes said, “Taught by Mrs. Maxwell this course teaches the three principles of etiquette – focusing on respect, consideration and honesty.”
Some sources at the prison said that Maxwell taught good manners and how to conduct yourself in a business interview.
The Daily Mail reported that Maxwell “women’s empowerment and the need to ‘maintain high moral standards.’”
The classes are being taught in English and a Colombian inmate is translating them into Spanish.
“It’s less about balancing books on heads and being ladylike, and more about having confidence in yourself – how to behave and talk in a professional manner, the secrets of success in the corporate world, that sort of thing,” a source told the press.
“Miss Maxwell’s message is, so what if you’re a woman and a convicted felon, you’re not a second-class citizen. She’s an unlikely role model but she’s very passionate about this.”
Ghislaine Maxwell was convicted in December 2021 on five federal sex trafficking charges. These charges included conspiracy to entice individuals under 17 to travel in interstate commerce with intent to engage in “illegal sexual activity.”
One of Maxwell’s accusers testified that Epstein and Maxwell abused her together when she was just 14 years old.
It’s hard to imagine that those running the Federal Correctional Institution in Tallahassee couldn’t find someone more appropriate to teach morals. Let’s hope getting this word out to people brings them to their senses.
