was released this week, and in it are some startling new
conclusions that are challenging old assumptions about
violence against women.

The New York City Department of Health studied the murder
of more than 1,100 women in the city over a five year period.
The portrait that emerges details how women were murdered,
who they were, and where they died.

GUEST:

DR. SUSAN WILT, an epidemiologist at the New York
City Department of Health and the leader of the study on
murder and women.
