The Conference on Crimes Against Women (CCAW) is thrilled the announce the Podcast on Crimes Against Women (PCAW). Continuing with our second season, the PCAW releases new episodes every Monday. The PCAW will serve as an extension of the information and topics presented at the annual Conference, providing in-depth dialogue, fresh perspectives, and relevant updates by experts in the fields of victim advocacy, criminal justice, medicine, and more. The presence of a global pandemic and our shifting “new normal” with COVID-19 has not decreased the frequency of crimes against women nor has it reduced the passion of those who serve survivors. This podcast’s format hopes to create a space for topical conversations aimed to engage and educate community members on the issue of violence against women, how it impacts our daily lives, and how we can work together to create lasting cultural and systemic change.
