Synopsis by Hal Erickson
One of several similarly-themed specials broadcast by the Lifetime cable network in the early 21st century, Together: Stop Violence Against Women was hosted by actress Angie Harmon and her professional-athlete husband Jason Sehorn. Using the first-person stories of four women (identified only by their first names) who have suffered domestic abuse, the special demonstrated how it was possible to survive and persevere under such adverse conditions. Lest anyone accuse the producers of male-bashing, the special was careful to include testimony from several men who have helped, supported, and provided encouragement to abused women, among them campus lecturer Jason Katz and Brooklyn district attorney Charles Hynes. Taking into consideration the mature nature of the special's content, Lifetime originally scheduled Together: Stop Violence Against Women in a late-night time slot.
