Abstract

This article presents a study of the experiences of 20 battered Israeli women in the process of reaching the turning point in their experience of abuse - the point at which they refused to live with violence and took active steps to stop it while living with the perpetrators. The process needs to be understood as a series of losses on the personal and interpersonal levels that, taken together, lead to a total change in the women's meaning systems.
