Joan Meier on HBO's "Allen v. Farrow" documentary

Professor Meier appears in "Allen v. Farrow," a new four-part HBO series documenting the accusation of sexual abuse against actor Woody Allen and the aftermath that followed. In episodes 3 and 4, Professor Meier sheds light on the strategies used by abusers, the "alienation" label often used to deny women's and children's abuse claims, and what is going on in family courts today. Her research, based at GW's National Family Violence Law Center, also provides much of the background for the film.
