Sarah Buel's 'Why Abuse Victims Stay, or Fifty Obstacles to Leaving

"That abuse victims make many coura-
geous efforts to flee the violence is too of-
ten overlooked in the process of judging
them for now being with the abuser"

"Regardless of whether I am providing train-
ing to legal, law enforcement, medical,
mental health, or social service profes-
sionals, when people find out I also have
been a victim of abuse, some inevitably
ask, “How is it you could get a full schol-
arship to Harvard Law School, but you
stayed with a violent husband for three years"
