This two-part article will examine two new sources, a law review article and a new book, both of which urge society to empower battered women by expanding their available options, recognizing that one size does not fit all. The second part of this article will examine Lisa Goodman and Deborah Epstein’s book, “Listening to Battered Women: A Survivor-Centered Approach to Advocacy, Mental Health, and Justice”.
