Laura, Jim and Lisa sit down with Professor Joan Meier, who was featured in the documentary series "Allen v Farrow". Professor Meier created the Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project (DV LEAP). She is an expert when it comes to the bias against women in Family Court and the lack of understanding in Family Court when it comes to the connection between reported child sexual abuse and domestic violence. She talks about the challenge of debunking the "Parental Alienation" narratives so prevalent in the Dylan Farrow case.

You can also watch Prof. Meier in the PBS documentary: Breaking the Silence: Children's Stories.
