In the United States, there is currently only one woman awaiting execution in federal prison: Lisa Montgomery. While President-elect Joe Biden wants to abolish the death penalty at the federal level, the Trump administration is apparently doing everything it can to execute a few candidates awaiting execution. In the past few months of Trump’s presidency, ten death sentences have been carried out at the federal level, more than ever in a year. Lisa Montgomery would also be the first woman since 1953 to be executed by the government.
