Power and Control: Domestic Violence in America
Metropolitan State University Library, Ecolab
Room, 645 East Seventh Street, Saint Paul
Addressing a life and death issue during a time of urgent crisis, this film is a timely and comprehensive exploration of physical and emotional abuse in our society, as refracted through the story of Kim Mosher, a Duluth, MN mother of three. Her story serves as a powerful reminder of progress we’ve made—and of the major reforms still needed in policing, medical care, advocacy, and in the fundamental cultural and social institutions that perpetuate the cycle of domestic violence. This film features interviews with local leaders including Representative Michael Paymar for his work with the Battered Women's Justice Project and Ellen Pence, Director of Praxis International.
Representative Michael Paymar, who is featured in the film, and Cheryl Thomas of The Advocates will facilitate the post-film discussion. This program is presented by The Advocates for Human Rights and The Friends of the St. Paul Public library and is cosponsored by Metropolitan State University’s Social Science Department and Students for Social Change.
