Why Women Stay
1980, 30 minutes, BW, DVD
Order No. W99169
This documentary examines the complex reasons why women remain in violent homes and challenges the prevailing attitudes which accept domestic violence as well as the social structures which perpetuate it. Among the issues examined are the attitudes of battered women, the lack of funding for shelters and the support battered women find in a shelter environment. Although produced more than ten years ago in a low budget format, this video still offers a complex analysis of an enduring social problem.


    "Superbly illustrates the struggles for battered women.a great asset for community education component."
    Naomi Porat
    Mid-Peninsula Support Network
