Prison offers little to ease domestic violence trauma. This program tries to fill the gaps


The number of women behind bars has risen dramatically in the U.S. over the last four decades. Amna Nawaz and producer Lena Jackson examine why so many women in prison are survivors of domestic violence, and why the trauma left behind from those relationships have such devastating consequences. It’s part of our ongoing series, Searching for Justice.
