    I'm actually one of the women photographed in this book whose mission is to prove that anyone can be a battered woman. Vera is a gifted professional photographer who used her artist's eye to shock the reader not with horrific photos of pain, but of the ordinary faces of victims.

    Published in 1997 to show real victims of domestic violence. Sadly not much has changed for women in America in the last 20 years. In fact it seems things are even getting worse.

    Very powerful book with real life stories and photos of women that have survived domestic violence. Each story is different and the women are diverse in ethnic and class backgrounds. Effective tool for working with survivors as well as public education about DV.
