Today, on International Women’s Day, the Crime Muse Facebook page was launched! Crime Muse aims to explore how we can better advocate for change, persuade others of the truth and use tools like social media to change the conversation about criminal and social justice.
Crime Muse hopes to inspire others to promote evidence-based criminal justice policy and practice. Crime Muse also offers an opportunity to reflect and muse about multiple truths, justice, and wicked problems which lack easy answers.
A year ago, I was lucky enough to be the co-recipient of a Great Ydeas grant. While my compadre established www.thecrimeconversation.com, I established Crime Muse.
While Crime Muse is still a work in progress, what I can say for sure is that I am passionate about using it as an opportunity to challenge misconceptions and assumptions about violence against women and girls. A key element of this is to better understand domestic and family violence, how to prevent and address it and the standard of response we must demand from the criminal justice and social justice sectors.
