You Can Be Free

An Easy-to-Read Handbook for Abused Women

If you are a woman being hurt by someone you love, this book is for you. It can help you understand your situation and find ways to change it. This indispensable guide offers straightforward, sensible information on how to establish a safety plan for you and your children, as well as advice on how best to find a safer home. This new edition also includes guidance specifically for Deaf women, immigrant women, rural women, and women with disabilities. It also includes special exercises designed to help you gain self-esteem and decide what you want from a relationship. You will find answers to such questions as:

“What is emotional abuse?”
“Is it ever right to break up the family?”
“How can I protect my children?”
“Where can I go if I leave my home?”
“But I still love my partner—should I go back?”
“How can I find legal help for my situation?”
“How do I go about starting over and making new friends?”


You will also read about women who left their abusive partners and began new lives—free of abuse. Today they have this to say: “I’m asking for what I want . . . I can make decisions on my own . . . What I like best about being away is being free.”
