Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

There is an old Latina expression, the author reports: A man is not truly a man if he beats his wife only once. He has to do it twice. Zambrano maintains that 1.8 million women per yeara surprising number of them Latinasare beaten in the U.S. by husbands or lovers. Writing in both Spanish and English, the author, a Mexican-American bilingual counselor for battered Latinas, offers victims of family violence encouragement, sensitive understanding and valuable advice: how to get into a shelter for battered women, how to find police protection, how to prevent a husband from kidnapping the children. She also addresses the Latin woman's particular problemsunsympathetic police officers, lack of immigration documentation, the need for interpretersand includes a chapter for social service workers who help Latinas, a glossary of legal terms and a bibliography. This excellent, clear-headed book is the third in Seal Press's series on family violence. November

From Library Journal

Zambrano's bilingual book accomplishes for her audience, the Latino woman, what Evelyn White's Chain, Chain, Change ( LJ 10/15/85) did for the black woman: defines domestic violence within a specific political, economic, cultural, and psychological context. It was written to serve both the abused and the agencies with which she may dealpolice, the courts, the medical profession, shelters, counselors, and religious leaders. Major areas of concern are the social/cultural factors that influence a Latino woman's choices; lack of monetary resources; the language barrier; and the rights and problems facing undocumented women. Recommended for women's studies and social welfare collections and libraries seeking Latino communities. Frada L. Mozenter, Univ. of North Carolina at Charlotte Lib.

Format: Paperback
Este es el libro esencial, no solamente para la mujer maltratada, pero tambien para todos los que quieren ayudarla o comprender su situacion. Todas las agencias que especializan en la violencia domestica utilizan este libro. Algunos de los temas de que se trata son: porque las mujeres se quedan en relaciones abusivas, porque algunos hombres son abusadores, el ciclo de la violencia, como afecta a los ninos la violencia domestica, cuales son los recursos de ayuda que existen para la mujer latina en los estados unidos, asuntos legales, y mas. Muy beneficioso, y es un libro escrito especialmente para las Latinas.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent resource for Latinas who are dealing with interpersonal violence. It's written both in Spanish and English and has chapters specific to issues these DV survivors face, such as cultural issues, community pressures, fear of accessing resources or lack of resources, being threatened by the abuser about immigration status, and so on. This book is like having a virtual advocate/support group for those who can't access the resources of a DV agency.
