Summary As recently as the 1960s the harm of domestic violence was not legally recognized. This book examines how pathbreaking feminist activists and lawyers have brought the severity of domestic violence to public attention since then and have led the U.S. Congress, the Supreme Court, and the United Nations to address the problem.
