Free Her–A movie and panel

Free Battered Texas Women and the University of the Incarnate Word present the BBC documentary “Why Women Kill” (1992). This free movie, open to the public, examines the dynamics between the women who survive; the men who batter; and the society that incarcerates. The post-film panel includes criminal justice researchers, victim advocates, and a formerly incarcerated survivor:  LuElla D’Amico, PhD, Assistant Professor of Women/Gender Studies, UIW; William S. Bush, Texas A&M, PhD; Professor of History, Texas A&M University-San Antonio; Patricia S. Castillo, L.M.S.W., P.E.A.C.E. Initiative; Cathy Marston, PhD, Free Battered Texas Women; and Doshie Piper, PhD, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, UIW.
