Domestic violence is not just about the latest celebrity headlines – it affects nearly one-third of American women. The goal of the STOP THE VIOLENCE events are to be catalysts that can lead to the collaboration of knowledge and action throughout a community. By utilizing Sin by Silence, organizations can help create change through the power of film. With budgets for shelters and support programs being slashed, and hotline calls on the rise, the time for awareness is now!
Sin by Silence offers a unique gateway into the lives of women who are domestic violence’s worst-case scenarios: women who have killed their abusive husands. Inside California's oldest women's prisons, the first inmate-initiated and led group in the U.S. prison system was created by inmate Brenda Clubine to help abused women speak out and realize they are not alone. Over the past two decades, the women of Convicted Women Against Abuse (CWAA) have changed laws for battered women and raised awareness for those on the outside.
Sin by Silence is an emotionally packed documentary that tells the personal and shocking stories of women who have learned from their past and are changing their future.
