“The War at Home”: On average, three women are killed by a current or former partner each day in the U.S. With firearms greatly increasing the odds of homicide inside homes that have reported domestic violence, some states are making efforts to seize the firearms of people with orders of protection against them. Meanwhile, other states have passed legislation making it easier for those who request protection orders to carry a weapon without a license. Gianna Toboni meets the women working to fix the shortcomings of a legal system that often fails to protect them.
“Putin’s Crimea”: Committing one of the most brazen annexations of territory since World War II, Russia seized the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea in 2014. Aside from economic sanctions, this land grab has largely been forgotten by the international community, and Russia’s grip on Crimea seems stronger than ever. Isobel Yeung investigates how Crimeans are faring under Russian control, and how Ukrainians are clinging to the hope of reunification.
