“After opening Women Out West and seeing the way Victims of Domestic Abuse were treated I began looking into why this was. A saw women who were told to leave their violent partner, or would have their children removed, then have their children removed for not sharing their children with the violent ex!!!
I saw on Twitter Dr Jessica Taylor had written this book and she had awful death threats and was literally hounded globally for daring to say we as a society blame women for the abuse they suffer. So I bought the book in solidarity and I have to say its totally changed the way I think of what we learn as women growing up. How we look to blame ourselves when we are attacked, even as children!!!
I thoroughly recommend this book to every social worker, police officer and every project worker in our sector. If you have been a victim of an attack, and you have blamed yourself, read this book. It certainly shines a new light on to this taboo subject”
