Female guards in Male prisons

I am doing some research on prisons and judicial practices around the world.
Is it true that in America it is common in some male prisons for female guards to watch and even take part in male strip searches and even oversee them while showering?
Does anyone have any experience of this, from both sides?

Not common but it does happen. It seems to be more widely accepted for female guards on males but there are rightfully several lawsuits that may change that. I personally think it is morally wrong.
