The elevator video of NFL player Ray Rice punching his then-fiancé and the outcry it generated has once again brought the all-too-common problem of domestic violence into the spotlight. One in four women in the United States will be victims of domestic violence in their lifetime. Physical and sexual attacks are often involved, but intimidation, emotional abuse and controlling behavior are all forms of domestic violence. Here to discuss domestic violence are Kenyatta Mickles, assistant professor of Clinical Law at the University of Cincinnati College of Law's Domestic Violence and Civil Protection Order Clinic, and UC Law Professors and Co-Directors of UC Law's Center for Race, Gender, and Social Justice, Emily Houh and Kristin Kalsem.
The Center for Race, Gender, and Social Justice and the University of Cincinnati present a sneak preview of the HBO documentary Private Violence, which explores the issue of domestic violence, at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center on Friday, October 3.
