Abused Women

No matter what you call it, it hurts. You want to do something about it, but what can you do that won't make your life even worse?

New editions of Ginny NiCarthy's books, Getting Free and You Can Be Free can help you figure out whether your partner is physically abusing you and whether you are being emotionally abused - which can be even more harmful.

This site includes information on the books, but also an incredibly extensive section of resources for women who are being or have been abused in relationships.
