Domestic Violence In The News

Here's a link to a New York Times article written by Charlie Stoops, one of the Center's Co-Founders, about the controversies surrounding the NFL recently. Charlie makes the point that punishment is not sufficient and that the criminal justice system can't be the only institution responsible for the change we need. The Center's Co-Executive Director, Mike Feinerman, was privileged to take a small part toward the end a BBC "World Have Your Say" program that was mostly devoted to hearing the voices of several strong women in South Africa who were also addressing the Pistorius case. The podcast is available until September 17th on this page - choose the broadcast from 10 Sep 2014. 

We must change the question from "Why doesn't she leave?" to "Why doesn't he stop?"
