This videotape is not yet digitized. Please email us to let us know you're interested in watching it, and we'll see if we're able to make it available online sooner.

Four women, who were victims of physical and emotional abuse, find support in a self-help group. This video, edited from material recorded at one of their weekly meetings, gives insight into the nature of domestic abuse and the problems women face in overcoming that situation. The self-help project was originated by Barbara Stewart, Chicago Department of Human Services Victim/Witness Advocacy Program, and Marcia Alpert, Loop Center YWCA Women’s Services Staff.
