You probably know someone who is subject to verbal, physical, or sexual abuse because statistically, 25% of Christian women are victims. It might be a neighbor, a daughter, a sister, or even a friend. Does the God of the Bible have answers meaningful and redemptive solutions to this pain and suffering? When Love Hurts, a powerful 4-part series from Day of Discovery television, pulls back the curtain on the dark secrets of abuse and offers hope and help to those trapped in its painful cycle.

Sin by Silence
HV 6626.2 .S556 2009
Inside the California Institution for Women, the first inmate initiated and led group in U.S. prison history, shatters the misconceptions of domestic violence.
Convicted Women Against Abuse (CWAA) was created in 1989 to help women inside prison break the silence about abuse and learn more about what they needed to do to help others stop the cycle of violence.
Instead of fighting a system that does not fully comprehend the complexities of abuse, the women of CWAA led an initiative to help educate the system. Through careful orchestration of letter writing campaigns, media coverage, and senate hearings a movement was born and laws for battered women were changed. And for the founder of CWAA, the flicker of hope begins to grow as her possible freedom, after 26 years in prison, lies moments away. (From www.sinbysilence.com)
