The Disappearing Act
Produced by: Barbara Saxberg
The facts are chilling. "Statistics Canada" tells us that a sixth of all murders committed in Canada in any given year are committed by a spouse. Of those, three quarters of the victims are women. We'll never know many women live in fear of their partners or are living in abusive relationships. So what can a woman do to protect herself? Some women decide that the only way is to disappear and then start over as someone else. Produced by Barbara Saxberg of the CBC.
