About the Author

Ginny NiCarthy has written many books dealing with the issue of violence against women. Her work to end abuse began in 1972 as founder and director of Rape Relief in Seattle. She later founded and directed the Abused Women's Network. She lives in Seattle.


This comprehensive handbook, written in a style easily read and understood, is a simplified version of NiCarthy's best seller Getting Free: A Handbook for Women in Abusive Relationships ( LJ 8/82; 1986. 2d ed.). Analysis of why men batter and why women stay in abusive relationships is interwoven with specific steps to be taken when leaving, getting counseling, preparing to prosecute, seeking shelter, finding employment, and validating one's self-worth. The use of ``activity lists'' in which the reader is asked to respond to questions makes the woman an active participant in analyzing and resolving her situation. This participatory technique, the simple writing style, and the authors' focus on the abused woman herself makes this an extremely useful sourcebook. Recommended for public libraries.-- Frada L.
