There are some things about the practice of law that I cannot understand. It just doesn’t seem just. Isn’t that the purpose of the law, ultimately?

Women who have murdered their spouses (even out of self-defense in abusive situations) typically receive the maximum sentence, which is often more jail time than men who murder their spouse receive. That information is taken from the article linked below and I really wish there were more details regarding this.

Filmmaker Elizabeth Rohrbaugh spent 4 years researching this topic and interviewing women for her documentary, The Perfect Victim. Check out the trailer here:

This Woman Killed Her Abusive Husband to Save Herself. Did She Deserve to Go to Prison? | MAKERS.
