|No Safe Place: Violence Against Women|
What can be done to stop violence against women?
Most experts say if we are really serious about ending violence against women, the punishment for such crimes must be harsh. Men -- and women -- must see that violence committed by strangers as well as by intimates will not be tolerated. They must be educated that any violence against women is a crime, and that if they are involved in an abusive relationship, either as victim or perpetrator, they need to seek outside help. Literature shows quite clearly that treatment coupled with arrest for domestic violence offenders is the most promising and effective combination of interventions.
No Safe Place: Violence Against Women is made possible in part by a grant from the Albert and Elaine Borchard Foundation and the Dr. Ezekiel R. and Edna Wattis Dumke Foundation. The documentary is a production of public television station KUED in Salt Lake City, Utah.
