Care providers, academics, and women themselves offer their perspectives on the abuse of women by intimate partners in this analytical text. The causes of partner abuse; adequacy of shelters, support groups, and other resources for abused women; and the impact of government policies are among the key issues explored. The voices and recommendations of abused women are presented in these real-life case studies. The often underexamined experiences of women abused by lesbian partners and the future challenges faced by abused women are also considered in this hard-hitting discussion of domestic violence.
