In 1995, the governor of Kentucky granted parole to ten women convicted of killing, conspiring to kill or assaulting their habitual abusers. The media called them the Sisters of Pain. L. Elizabeth Beattie and Mary Angela Shaughnessy interviewed seven of the women. Sisters in Pain: Battered Women Fight Back describes their stories of horror and survival, of physical, sexual and psychological abuse in heart-wrenching detail. The authors place the stories in the historical and cultural context of American domestic violence, examining the legal implications of fighting back. Discover how the remarkable Sisters in Pain have confronted their pasts and put their shattered lives back together.
