Defending Our Lives
Thousands of women are abused, battered, stalked, and killed by their husbands, boyfriends, lovers, and partners every year. While the O.J. Simpson trial raised domestic abuse to the forefront of public consciousness, no one has offered women concrete advice on how to protect themselves and get safely away from their abusers. In Defending our Lives, Susan Murphy-Milano, the founder of Project Protect, presents the first comprehensive guide to the options available to battered women as well as to the family and friends who want to help them.
