At first glance I thought this horrible story wasn’t directly related to the “when women refuse” theme but then I saw: “She tried to leave after about 15 minutes, but Williams refused to let her go.”  There are other notes in the article of refusals resulting in escalating violence and abuse. Note: this man has been formally charged and indicted but not convicted.

I so appreciate this project. Thank you.
