Explores the issue of same sex partner violence between women.
This powerful and sensitive video defines the dynamics of women's same-sex abusive relationships, and examines the impact of oppression when addressing woman-to-woman battering. Women who have been in abusive relationships tell their stories, and offer testimony about the unique situations faced by women with same sex partners. Their fear of coming out, their particular difficulty finding resources in rural areas, the harm done to family and friends as well as the abused woman are all discussed. Experts also talk about the need for community education, community resources, more research on the issue, and the profound need for support for women battered by women. This program was produced in 1995, but is still as needed and relevant as it was in the past.
