Domestic Violence Hands Project: Hands of the Violent Man

  Email   Print

This photo is the most recent in the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Center "Hand Project." The goal is to show the wicked face of domestic violence without actually showing the face of those who suffered.

This woman, who is 53 today, talked about her ex and the violence and torment he caused in a way that would make one vomit. At one point, he broke her ankle so that she could not run from him. When her left ankle finally healed, he broke her right ankle.

To hear a short clip of her story, listen to the audio below:

"In situations of captivity the perpetrator becomes the most powerful person in the life of the victim, and the psychology of the victim is shaped by the actions and beliefs of the perpetrator." -- Judith Lewis Herman, "Trauma and Recovery: The Aftermath of Violence"
