Adam Banner - Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Oklahoma has one of the highest rates of domestic violence in the nation. It ranks highly in the number or women killed by men. It also has the country's highest incarceration rate of women, many of whom are victims of domestic violence punished for "allowing" the actions of their abusive partners.
