dc.description.notesA number of laws have been originally enacted to protect women from domestic and family violence. However, women who experience abuse and have employed violence for protection are also arrested under such laws. This article discusses the limitations of institutionalised responses to domestic violence in addressing battered women circumstances in the US and Canada. The authors also suggest five strategies for advocates of battered women who have been arrested for using violence against their assailants. The strategies focus on reducing the number of arrests, working with defense attorneys, working with prosecutors, sentencing and rehabilitation and confronting criticism.en
