Blood on Whose Hands?: The Killing of Women & Children in Domestic Homicides
Women's Coalition Against Family Violence, Jan 1, 1994 - Abused children - 155 pages
This book brings together the stories of a number of murdered women and children as told by their family and friends. The accounts highlight the extent of institutional and community inaction towards, and complicity in, domestic violence. "Blood on Whose Hands? ... presents a humanistic rather than legalistic view of domestic homicide. The book's power comes from its analysis of the experiences of women and children subjected to domestic violence, and its exploration of the pain and anger of their survivors."Irene Moss, Federal Race Discrimination Commissioner
