While domestic abuse does not discriminate by gender, ethnicity, or age group, 95 percent of its victims are women. The bruises, scars, and emotional wounds will affect one in every three women in the United States. Yet countless women return, again and again, to their abusers. They are trapped in the revolving door of abuse. For those who are able to escape, the choices are grim: poverty, homelessness, and health problems await many women and their children. In this revealing and candid book, you will meet courageous women who broke away from abusive relationships to escape the agonizing pain and find lasting peace. Paperback.
