Overview

Dangerous Exits: Escaping Abusive Relationships in Rural America by Walter DeKeseredy, Martin Schwartz

Decade after decade, violence against women has gained attention from social scientists, policy makers, and the general public. Yet, strikingly, scant attention has focused on the victimization of women who want to leave their hostile partners.

This groundbreaking work challenges the perception that rural communities are safe havens from the brutality of urban living. Identifying hidden crimes of economic blackmail and psychological mistreatment, and the complex relationship between patriarchy and abuse, Walter S. DeKeseredy and Martin D. Schwartz propose concrete and effective solutions, giving voice to women who have often suffered in silence.
