The Complexities Behind Domestic Violence
WBUR NPR On Point
Talking about domestic abuse in the wake of the allegations against former New York state attorney general Eric Schneiderman.
Ray Suarez interviews guests: Jane Mayer, staff writer for The New Yorker who helped break the story of domestic abuse allegations; Megan McArdle, wrote the recent column 'I went back to a man who hit me. I'm still thinking about why; and Julie Owens, counselor, domestic violence consultant and domestic violence survivor.
"...I was a good feminist. It wasn't that I didn't know that you're not suppose to stay with men who hit you. It's that I contextualized it. Maybe it wasn't deliberate."
