Summary
Host Barbara Barrow-Murray chairs a discussion between Evelyn Lee, Consuelo Gonzalez-Thornell, Renee Harriston, Ledith Lugo, Renae Scott, and Barbara Bullette, about how women are changing their attitudes about themselves, and how that attitude change can be a determining factor when they ever become victims of violence. Topics include rape, verbal and physical abuse (including spousal), reactions to abuse from the police, and self-protection. Barbara Barrow-Murray talks about the everyday politeness we show to strangers that can be used against women when they are attacked.
