Darla Dumler: Emerging from Under the Staircase of Domestic Violence on Holy Hormones Honey! April 29
Women who experienced physical, emotional, or sexual abuse as children are more likely to have a child with autism than women who were not abused, according to a new study from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). Those who experienced the most serious abuse had the highest likelihood of having a child with autism — three-and-a-half times more than women who were not abused.
Anger is an increasingly serious problem in our society today according to Martin E.P. Seligman, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and former President of the American Psychological Association. “Out-of-hand anger ruins many lives,” he says. “More, I believe, than schizophrenia, more than alcohol, more than AIDS. Maybe even more than depression.” Seligman’s research also shows that when couples fight, it can damage their children, often in lasting ways.
No doubt in my mind that any man who uses violence against women should be classified as a ‘terrorist.’ I am glad Lucy Berrington has brought this issue and this perception into the media. Women do not have homeland security to protect us. Many of us have been told that if police handled every single domestic disturbance between women and men – they would not have time to fight crime.

For too long women have stood alone. When it comes to violence against women, too many of us still think it’s “just” a women’s issue. In particular, it is about time MPs took this seriously. Here’s why.
Sexual and physical violence at the hands of a man affects a staggering 45% of women in England and Wales sometime in their lives. That’s one-quarter of British voters. Voters. People who give our politicians their jobs.
In the carpeted, curtained splendor of a National Harbor hotel ballroom, a Nigerian social worker described the life of the abused women in her village, how they work and fish and trade at the market, “but the men take all the money from them.”
Barry Goldstein, co-author of DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, ABUSE, and CHILD CUSTODY on Holy Hormones Honey Feb 27, 2012
BARRY GOLDSTEIN, is an attorney, teacher, author and advocate for women abused by their partner (and too often the courts). Goldstein practiced law in New York State for 30 years. He served on the board of directors of the local battered women’s shelter for 14 years including four years as chairperson. An ever larger part of his law practice involved representing victims of domestic violence as many dv agencies and women’s advocates recommended him to their clients. Few other attorneys had the experience with domestic violence or the willingness to handle cases on a pro bono or reduced fee basis. For the past ten years, Goldstein has worked with the Community Change Project of the Volunteer Counseling Service teaching domestic violence classes for men convicted of abusing their partners.
