TILL DEATH DO US PART WINS TOP PULITZER AWARD

The Post and Courier of Charleston, South Carolina, USA with a staff of 80 and a daily circulation of 85,000, won the most prestigious of the Pulitzer Prizes for journalism awarded last Monday for a series on the high number of deaths resulting from domestic abuse in the state.
Their work told the tales of domestic abuse survivors and of the 300 women in the Palmetto State who have been shot, stabbed, strangled, beaten, bludgeoned or burned to death by men during the past decade while legislators did little to quell the bloodshed.
The series, titled Till Death Do Us Part, was awarded the gold medal for public service, the first Pulitzer the paper has won since 1925. 
It is the first time in five years that the prize has gone to such a small newspaper. 
A panel of seven judges from news media and academia called the newspaper’s work “riveting.” The honor was announced Monday afternoon at Columbia University in New York City.
