When Battered Women Are Arrested – A Growing Problem

In recent years, Battered Women’s Support Services has become increasingly alarmed by the growing number of women accessing our services who have been arrested for allegedly perpetrating domestic violence against their partners.  In our experience these arrests are occurring despite the fact that in all cases women were in relationships where they were being abused.

BWSS has written resources in response to this growing problem which are now available. Please click on the images below to download the full PDF version of the toolkit or manual.
