When Women Kill

What would make an ordinary woman kill her husband?
This powerful documentary is about three battered women who, after years of violence, kill their abusers. These women killed when they felt they had no other options: the police and the courts did not protect them, and society failed to take them seriously.

“A powerful and poignant documentary that puts unforgettable faces on the people behind headlines about domestic violence.”
June Callwood, Author

“…an important documentary about the nightmare of battery. It gets the issues right: Male violence and female self-defence” Andrea Dworkin, Author
