 Examining the Relationship Between the Women's Anti-Violence Movement
and the Criminal Legal System

For many individual women, services and the legal system helped them escape violent relationships, decreased the violence in their lives, provided them and their children with increased options and opportunities and,for many, saved their lives. However, for others, involvement with the criminal legal system has not been a positive or helpful experience.

This report is a starting point from which to examine the complexities of the relationship between the criminal legal system and the women's anti-violence movement, as well as to envision solutions and strategies for preventing violence against women. It focuses on state intervention in the form of the criminal legal system; with the growing trend toward interlocking health, social services, and other systems; however, the scope and reach of state intervention extends far beyond the criminal legal system.
