I might be biased in terms of original interest in the subject matter, but this book is amazing. Open and honest first-person accounts, non-fiction resource guides, proposals and suggestions for the future... this book has it all. For such a heavy subject matter, the organization of the materials makes it very easy to get through.

excellent! my auntie has her story in there and it's a tear jerker. It's not excellent because of her story but what the other women share on their survival through different forms of violence and abuse
