A gendered analysis of external structural contexts, as well as individual responses, reveals the constraints women face.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book is a welcome addition to the existing literature in this field and is highly suitable for both practioner and academic audiences alike.' - Child and Family Social Work

'It is the voice of these women - individually and collectively - that makes this book such an extremely powerful read. I am confident that this will be a valuable text for those new to this field and to others who often feel frustrated at the 'clinical' way in which issues of domestic violence are often presented.' - Melanie McCarry, Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law

'It is written in an accessible style and offers analyses of the multiple factors that are relevant for understanding the material and psychological dimensions of violence...offers an invaluable resource for helping professionals, academics and policy makers working with women and children affected by domestic violence.' - Claudia Bernard, British Journal of Social Work
