Strength of a Woman

The short documentary “Strength of a Woman” is a few years old by now, but its stories have not diminished in value. The movie highlights what some women go through when they are involved in abusive relationships, in addition to the devastating consequences. The subject matter, as described by the formerly incarcerated women in the documentary, can be hard to take, and it showcases how women can lose their self-esteem—fast. Emotional manipulation is a powerful force.

“He felt like he could just put his hands on me,” says one woman.

The movie was made by the Correctional Association of New York.
