    Information Every Woman Should Have: Domestic Violence Handbook

    Great reference book - includes a breakdown of domestic violence into its many components. Readers are able to look behind closed doors and witness scenes of domestic violence. Information Every Woman Should Have helps you to understand how so many have fallen victim to the abusers in today's society. I recommend this book to all victim advocates; the resources contained within the pages will make it easier to refer clients to agencies throughout the country. Libraries should offer this book in the reference section. Domestic violence victims will be able to find the help they need in the safety of our public libraries.
