Teaching Resources: Domestic Violence & Poverty

For those of you who aren't familiar with the In Her Shoes exercise produced by the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, it is a fabulous resource for teaching how multiple systems affect the ability of victims of domestic violence to escape.  The coalition also produces an "Economic Justice" edition that helps students understand why low-income victims are at much higher risk of continued severe abuse. 

The WSCADV Website provides more information about this resource and an order form for the materials.

Has anyone studied the number of false accusations filed in the family law system?
Many innocent people are damaged by false domestic violence allegations. False
allegations are filed to gain the upper hand in child custody and divorce cases. I am
one of the many so I know first hand. There are one million false statements filed each year. It damaged my fiances, my name, my child and it has damaged the
people (like you) who are trying to help women that are real victims. There are real
victims of domestic violence, weed out the abusers and prosecute them. Make
false allegations a felony.
