“Maid” to Survive: Cleaning up the Myth about Domestic Violence

January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Netflix original series Maid explores a young mother’s struggle to provide for her child after fleeing an abusive relationship. Released in October 2021, the ten-part series has been widely viewed and discussed. Join Jewish Family & Children’s Service for a panel discussion about Maid, including the harsh financial and logistical realities facing women who want to leave abusive relationships. The program will also dispel the myth that domestic abuse is limited to physical violence—exploring the emotional and financial aspects that prevent many victims from leaving.
