“I wanted to comment on your decision to show the film after Super Bowl Sunday. Bravo! How timely! Perhaps you are already aware of this, but when I worked for the Battered Womens Hotline, we had the most calls of violence after the Super Bowl game. One of the worst days of the year for women who are under threat of abuse. Thank you for providing a place to gather and raise consciousness.” ~ Nancy, Petaluma
