The Conference on Crimes Against Women is thrilled the announce the Podcast on Crimes Against Women, with 14 episodes in the inaugural season releasing 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.

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.
