a hard watch: the reality of an abusive home

The average battered woman tries to leave seven times before she is finally able to leave for good.  20/20 shares with us the story of a very brave woman who gets the courage to leave an abusive relationship after years of being brainwashed that she is the problem.  How I wish that every judge could see this clip and have the same response in their courtroom as did the one who presided over this case.  I’m hoping that this clip will help give another woman, who fears for her life and for her children, the encouragement to leave.   You are not alone, you can do this.
