Invisible Women: The Forgotten Victims of Gender-Based Violence

Podcast on Crimes Against Women

Jun 5 2023 • 41 mins

The Women's Prison Project offers transformative no-cost legal representation for survivors of domestic violence who have been wrongfully incarcerated in the state of Louisiana. Co-director Becki Kondar, and supervising attorneys Carlotta Lepingwell and Stas Moroz join the conversation to discuss how domestic violence can impact a woman's chances for incarceration and how the project is working to change that.

The Women's Prison Project was awarded the Ignite Award at the 2023 CCAW. The project is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Tulane’s Domestic Violence and Criminal Justice Clinics. The organization was honored for its work to support survivors charged or imprisoned after killing an abuser in self-defense or for having committed crimes under an abuser’s coercion or duress.

This episode was recorded on location at the 2023 CCAW and discusses incarceration, gender-based violence, and discrimination.
