Domestic Violence

The greatest threat women face is from men they know. More than half of female homicide victims were killed in connection to intimate partner violence. The criminal justice system doesn’t always recognize that fact.

Most women end up in prison if they use a gun to protect themselves from abusive male partners. The cruel reality is that our legal system treats most female victims of domestic violence with suspicion, especially when they fight back.
