“Where there is violence, a house is not a home”
March 13, 2012
By Susan Dentzer
IRC staff and commission members meet with women in Liberia's capital city, Monrovia, to explore the problem of abuse at home. Six out of every 10 women who seek assistance from the IRC in West Africa do so because of domestic violence.
Journalist and International Rescue Committee (IRC) Overseer Susan Dentzer is visiting Liberia and Sierra Leone this week as a member of the IRC Commission on Domestic Violence. Dentzer is the editor-in-chief of Health Affairs and an on-air health policy analyst for The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer on PBS.
