Summary
Illustrates the dynamics of domestic violence through the experience of Bernice, an African American woman who lived in a domestically violent situation for over ten years. Examines how low-income women seek nuclear families and form them early; how getting off welfare and finding work is key to an abused woman's finding her identity and self-worth and how abusive partners sabotage these women's work efforts
