Confronting Violence, Improving Women’s Lives

Activists and reformers in the United States have long recognized the harm of domestic violence and sought to improve the lives of women who were battered. Confronting Violence, Improving Women’s Lives explores the developments during latter half of the 20th century, when nurses took up the call. Beginning in the late 1970s, nurses were in the vanguard as they pushed the larger medical community to identify victims, adequately respond to their needs, and work towards the prevention of domestic violence.


We are pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition, Confronting Violence, Improving Women’s Lives on March 13, 2017 – April 21, 2017 brought to you by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
