The Entrapment of Women in Personal LifeBook - 2009
Despite its great achievements, the domestic violence revolution is stalled, Evan Stark argues in this provocative and persuasive book. Interventions have failed to improve women's long-term safety in relationships or to hold perpetrators accountable, he shows, because the singular focus on physical violence against women masks an even more devastating reality. In millions of abusive relationships, men use a largely unidentified form of subjugation that more closely resembles kidnapping or indentured servitude than assault. He calls this pattern of manipulative behaviors coercive control.
