Prone To Violence

This is an online book by Erin Pizzey who founded the first refuge for battered wives in 1971, the book is her personal story of all the struggles she had in getting the shelter set up, her encounters with DV victims and the men's side of the story and how she also set up a men's shelter, but it was closed down due to the grant being withdrawn. You can read it here. I remember hearing a rumor that Erin Pizzey fled Britain soon after publishing this book due to death threats from women's groups, I can't confirm this but would any of us be surprised? Scott's note: Murray Straus, a family violence researcher, has also received death threats and bomb threats at his speaking engagements. At times radical feminists act more like terrorists it seems.
