Domestic abuse: Are abused women and battered women the same?
Many people think that battered women have black eyes and broken bones. However, domestic abuse encompasses a whole range of ways of controlling and hurting.
Intimate relationships are so intense that sometimes its hard to tell the difference between legitimate anger and a dangerous pattern of wife abuse. And you don't have to be married (or living together) to be a victim of domestic violence.
This site is dedicated to helping women begin to figure out if they are in abusive relationships - and what they might want to do if they decide that they are! And to aid the counselling professionals and friends/families who are supporting them.
