In the last two months, two 23-year-old women have been allegedly kidnapped from clubs in downtown Boston.

Only one of the victims was found alive. Jassy Correia, a young mother from Lynn, was found dead in the trunk of a car, authorities said.

We talk to Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins about what these high-profile attacks mean for young women in Boston, and what everyone — men and women — can do to prevent violence against women.

Plus, in the wake of a tragedy, what are women thinking about the balance between freedom and safety?
