This documentary offers a view into the lives of women who are living worst-case scenarios of domestic violence and survivors — women who have killed their abusive husbands. Based on the first inmate-initiated and -led support group in the United States prison system, the film reveals the history and stories of the members of the group Convicted Women Against Abuse created by inmate Brenda Clubine in 1989.

These events are sponsored by the Miami Hamilton Diversity Council. For more information, call Sree Subedi at 513-785-3266. Miami University Hamilton is located at 1601 University Blvd.
