Not to People Like Us by Susan Weitzman
Book DescriptionAs seen on "2020," "48 Hours," "Sally Jesse Raphael," and in People magazine: A startling expos of domestic violence against well-educated, well-to-do women, and a powerful indictment of the social service system that fails to protect them.. How is it possible for a highly educated woman with a career and resources of her own to stay in a marriage with an abusive husband? How can a man be considered a pillar of his community and regularly give his wife a black eye? The very nature of these questions proves how convinced we are that domestic violence is restricted to the lower classes. Now Susan Weitzman explores a heretofore overlooked population of battered wives-the upper-educated and upper-income women who rarely report abuse and remain trapped by their own silence.
