Film Summary:

Both WOAR and CLS work closely in the area of domestic violence, and provide legal represention to the overwhelming majority of Philadelphia women who go through the court system to seek protection from abuse.  Because a new law now allows women to file for protection orders without the help of an attorney, WOAR and CLS are producing an educational, self-help video to provide women with the information they will need to successfully petition for, and enforce, protection orders.
