Join the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) and REEL SOUTH for a special screening of the award winning documentary PRIVATE VIOLENCE followed by a conversation with Kit Gruelle (featured subject) and Ruth Glenn (Executive Director, NCADV).


With at least four women murdered each day by abusive (and often, ex) partners, a woman in America is most in danger in her own home. Witness the complex realities of intimate partner violence through the eyes of two survivors: Deanna Walters, a mother seeking justice for her estranged husband’s crimes against her, and victims’ advocate Kit Gruelle. Executive produced by Gloria Steinem.


The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) is the voice of victims and survivors and works as the catalyst for changing society to have zero tolerance for domestic violence. NCADV does this by affecting public policy, increasing understanding of the impact of domestic violence, and providing programs and education that drive change.


REEL SOUTH, is an anthology series highlighting the best non-fiction storytelling from across the American South. REEL SOUTH is a co-production of UNC-TV, South Carolina ETV, and the Southern Documentary Fund (SDF) with major funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

    Before becoming the Executive Director of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Ruth was employed by the Colorado Department of Human Services for 28 years and served as the Director of the Domestic Violence Program (DVP) for the last nine of those years. Ruth has worked and volunteered in the domestic violence field for more than 19 years and holds a Masters in Public Administration from the University of Colorado, Denver, Program on Domestic Violence, as well as a degree in Communications. A survivor of domestic violence herself, Ruth has shared her experiences in many venues, including an introduction for Vice President Joe Biden during the 20th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act (2014). She was also featured in a domestic violence speech given by President Barack Obama in 2011.

  • Kit Gruelle, Special Advisor and Film Subject

    Kit Gruelle is a survivor of domestic violence and has worked as a battered women’s advocate and community educator for over 25 years. She educates advocates, criminal justice professionals, healthcare providers, faith leaders, educators and other allied professionals about domestic violence. She is dedicated to challenging the stereotypes and prevailing belief systems about violence against women and children and highlights the prevalence of out-of-date responses that do little to change the fundamental dynamics of domestic violence.
