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 those who live at the lower end of the economic ladder. Now Dr. Susan Weitzman explores a heretofore overlooked population of battered wives -- the highly-educated and upper-income women who rarely report abuse and remain trapped by their own silence.
