dc.description.notesThis chapter, entitled “Captivity”, articulates the similarities between the experiences of those held hostage - political prisoners, survivors of concentration camps and those subjected to domestic violence. Herman highlights that the barriers to escape for those experiencing domestic violence are usually invisible but extremely powerful. She states that women are rendered captive by economic, social, psychological and legal subordination as well as by physical force. Describes the relationship between the victim and perpetrator as one of coercive control, enacted by inducing fear, destroying autonomy, providing intermittent rewards, increasing isolation, creating dependency, and forcing her to betray her own strongly held moral principles. Herman describes post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, issues in relation to identity and relationships with others, which are manifestations of the infliction of such systematic and repetitive psychological trauma.en
