DescriptionThe issues surrounding violence against women, in particular wife-battering and the social structures within which women continue to be victims, are effectively put across using an innovative style of drawn animation. The film was made in close collaboration with the Blijf Van Mijn Lijf Association - a pressure group which also provides shelter for women in Holland, and much of the text is based on interviews with women living in refuges.
