About this book

Introduction

This book follows a group of women pursuing safety from abusive relationships. Seven influential social dimensions are examined: power, emotion, children, home, economic resource, informal and community support. A gendered analysis of external structural contexts, as well as individual responses, reveals the constraints women face.
