About

support the freedom and promote the healing of domestic violence survivors in prison

Free Battered Women is one of the only organizations in the country focusing on working together with incarcerated survivors of domestic violence. We are a volunteer-run statewide organization which has done incredible work--including helping to secure the release of over twenty women prisoners in the past few years. Many of these women were abused survivors who defended themselves against violence, only to be convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Free Battered Women is not a "charity": we believe that we must struggle together with women inside prison for not only their liberation from violence, but also ours.
