Description

Many women find themselves in abusive relationships and don't even know they are being abused. Once trapped, they must find a way to escape! Battered Woman's Dilemma: In a Struggle for Survival underscores some of the main challenges battered women still face in their day-to-day struggle for survival and ultimate escape from domestic violence. The struggle is illustrated by real battered women whose stories are woven into the chapters. Society holding victims at fault, law enforcement agencies' misunderstanding of the complexities of intimate partner violence, and the justice system and its lax attitude in adjudicating these cases help perpetuate violence against women. Women will be able to recognize abusive relationships, understand the cycle of violence, and learn about strategies for leaving safely. The values of self-esteem and self-love, tips on breaking the cycle of abuse, and the necessity of emotional and psychological healing in the aftermath help to bring a holistic approach to understanding and ending the cycle of violence.show more
