During the late evening hours of August 23, 2007, Jennifer Gauthier Magnano’s four month struggle to be free from her abusive husband came to a violent end when she was murdered by her abusive husband, Scott Magnano, who then turned the gun on himself and took his own life, leaving behind their three children.
When they came across the story about how she was failed by the State of Connecticut, three women decided something needed to be done. Her story needed to be told.
In this special episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with Elle, Yuria, and Katie - the team behind the animated documentary, Jennifer, 42.
Domestic abuse is a deeper problem than we may realize, and hopefully this film will shed some light on it.
Tune in to this special Daring Woman Podcast as we discuss Jennifer's story, the film, and domestic abuse.
