Violence Against American Indian Women
Violence Against American Indian Women

Listen
AIR DATE: March 12, 2013

Violent crime is rampant on Indian reservations across the country, and crimes against women are frighteningly common. The recent passage of the Violence Against Women Act included changes that will help tribal police and courts pursue people who commit crimes against women and girls. But the law addresses just one part of a very complicated problem. We'll talk to two American Indian women about studies of violence and what they've seen on their own reservations.
