Women's Human Rights Film Series: Private Violence


Every day at least four women are murdered in the United States by abusive (and often former) partners. The film "Private Violence" explores a simple but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America is her own home. Through the eyes of two survivors, we witness the complex reality of intimate partner violence. Their experiences challenge entrenched and misleading assumptions, providing a lens into a world locked behind closed doors with our silence, our laws, and our lack of understanding. "Private Violence" shapes powerful, new questions that hold the potential to change our society.

The Advocates for Human Rights staff attorney Beatríz Menanteau will moderate a post-film discussion.
