Sin By Silence is a gateway into the lives of women who are domestic violence’s worst-case scenarios: women who have killed their abusers.

Inside California’s oldest women’s prisons, Sin By Silence shatters the misconceptions of domestic violence, telling the harrowing stories of the women from Convicted Women Against Abuse (CWAA), created in 1989 to help convicted domestic violence survivors inside the prison break the silence about abuse. Instead of fighting a system that does not fully comprehend the complexities of abuse, the women of CWAA have fought to change laws for battered women, and extended their message to help others stop the cycle of violence.

Sin by Silence will air on the Discovery Channel October 17, at 8pm PT.
