Program Description

A very serious view into the life of a woman whose years of emotional and physical abuse led her to MCI Framingham prison, charged with manslaughter. With testimony from reformed batterers and counseled victims, we look at why black women report abuse at such a disproportionate rate, and how the state must deal with one of the rising causes of death for women in Massachusetts.
