women and their experiences with domestic abuse.

    Based on the scenarios and videos, discuss how Battered Women Syndrome (BWS), Rape Trauma Syndrome (RTS) and Self-Defense may have played a role in the actions of these women.  In the cases of Francine Wilson, Lorena Bobbitt and Rita Felton, do you feel a defense of Self-Defense was warranted?  Should Francine and Rita be charged with murder and sentenced to prison for the death of their husbands?  If not, explain what type of sentence outcome would be more appropriate.
