Thanks to the Simpson case, domestic violence is no longer a dirty little secret. It remains, however, a devastating problem, and even more, a deadly killer. What is the answer? In 1994, Lou Brown, father of Nicole Brown Simpson, gave us one solution by establishing a foundation in his daughter's name that provides urgently needed funding to battered women's shelters across the country. Now he goes a step further, and with the help of a like-minded pastor and a legal activist who has been battered, offers hope and practical strategies for combating domestic violence. In a book whose first half is geared to support network people like himself--parents, families, friends, both personal and professional, and acquaintances who can and should make a difference--and whose second half is directed at the victims of abuse, here is an action plan for battered women and those around them.. This book offers a checklist for the victim of domestic violence, from obtaining restraining orders to getting the support network on her side. Here are steps on how to combat battering within families, within communities, within homes and at the legislative level.

For Concerned Friends and Family:
What makes these men do it, and is there a cure for them?
Why do women stay?
What can I do to help a battered woman?

And for the Victim--How do I:
Get stronger on the inside?
Deal with the legal system?
Stay sane in a shelter?
Stay save and begin recovery?

This is a how-to book--practical, easy to use--and it just might save a life.
