Life Writing: Empowerment for the Future (1994)

Women's Education des femmes, Fall 1994 - Vol. 11, No. 2

Women who have been victims of violence, whether verbal, emotional, psychological, or physical, often have been deprived of some part of their education. Coping with violence at home, in society, or at school can make it impossible to find the energy and concentration required in the classroom.

This article describes a technique that can open the learning process to women who have been alienated from educational institutions, or that can reverse the effects of violence—life writing.
