Violence against TN women

For those context-lovers out there, here’s the Tennessean’s report on violence against women in the state, and the near $1 billion cost.

This information was released in the conference that Knox County Commissioner Amy Broyles and Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero attended in October. Commission Vice Chairman R. Larry Smith used Broyles’ trip to the October Tennessee Economic Council on Women to highlight his displeasure with her travel expenses (which leads commissioners over the 18 months) and her meeting attendance (she’s missed more meetings since 2010 than any other sitting commissioner).

But his argument received some pushback from the League of Women Voters last week, and some members of the League spoke in Tuesday’s Commission work session about Smith’s comments. Smith also apologized to Broyles.

So that’s the latest. And if you’re wanting to see the report from the Tennessee Economic Council on Women, go here: Executive Report – violence against women
