Kim Dadou shared her experiences as a DV survivor in prison. She was incarcerated for 17 years and uses her own experiences to convey the barriers that she encountered in the criminal justice system. Dadou argues for the need to change perceptions of women who defend themselves against their abusers and reform sentencing. Prison, she says, is not the place for a battered woman to be rehabilitated.
