One of the more important causes that The CWR Network supports is the fight against domestic violence against women.  In this week's program we are delighted to have two former guest return, Ms. Julie Owens and Mr. Barry Goldstein, both of whom are ardent advocates for victims of domestic violence.  This program is a powerful expose with revelations from a new study that reveals how many family and civil courts charged with the duty to make formal judgments or decisions about child custody, that there is gender inequality in our legal system, and that  men’s  violence in  the  family is  often rendered invisible  by  family  court  practices.

During this hour, we will also hear from a survivor of domestic violence sharing her experience, and how the courts responded in a manner similar to what is described in the new study about gender inequality in the legal system, and the impact those actions had on her and her children.
