"Ferrato's grim achievement is to tear down the curtain, revealing ordinary women--and yes, the men who batter them--in desperately ordinary kinds of pain. . . [It is] a new kind of work: journalism focused on intimate domestic affairs; combat photography in the home."--

Her stark black-and-white photographs and straightforward text constitute a work of far-reaching sociological and photographic significance."--Friends of Photography newsletter
