Governor’s Task Force Takes On SC’s Domestic Violence Ranking

160107_haley_dom_violence.jpg

Yesterday, Governor Nikki Haley issued an executive order to continue the work of a Domestic Violence Task Force, begun a year ago in January. Last year, South Carolina was ranked 1st in the Nation for the rate of women murdered by men. Governor Haley and members of the Task Force spoke at a press conference about new measures the state will be taking this year to bring that ranking down. South Carolina Public Radio’s Laura Hunsberger has more on the story.
