About the Author
Dr. Ludy Green’s introduction to the battered women’s movement took place when she volunteered in a shelter in Washington, D.C. many years ago. She immediately saw the need to assist victims of abuse and trafficking by placing them in the workforce—her theory being that financial independence would fulcrum these women away from their abusers, by providing them with the necessary skills to earn a living. Under the careful guidance of Dr. Green, Second Chance Employment Services has assisted women by outfitting them with new clothing, training and the commensurate confidence with which to interview for and hold a job. This concept of establishing employment for victims of abuse and trafficking is a solution-oriented step in overcoming abuse. Along the way, Dr. Green tapped a nerve—engaging politicians, CEOs of large corporations, Congress and the United Nations to acknowledge and embrace her vision. In 2013, she was instrumental in providing some new language for the updated Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Through employment a woman can gain her independence, her well-being and her dignity to ultimately distance herself from her abuser. Dr. Green’s book is a road map for this journey.
