Domestic Violence in South Carolina
In September of 2014, the Violence Policy Center ranked South Carolina second in nation in rate of women killed by men. Their report was release just weeks after Charleston's The Post and Courier newspaper ran a three-week series on criminal domestic violence called “Till Death Do Us Part," which later won the Pulitzer Prize.
Jennifer Hawes was part of The Post & Courier team that reported and wrote the series. She joins Sara Barber, Executive Director of The South Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, talk with Walter Edgar about the problem of domestic violence in South Carolina, and what's being done about it.
