National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women

National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women

A project of the Battered Women’s Justice Project. Provides customized, case-specific technical assistance to battered women charged with crimes and their defense teams (attorneys, advocates and expert witnesses). The Defense Center works on cases that involve women who have injured or killed their batterer in self-defense; battered women who have been coerced into criminal activity; women charged with "failing to protect" their children from their batterer’s violence; and women who are charged with parental kidnapping or custodial interference after fleeing with their child (or children) to protect themselves or their children from their batterer’s violence.
