Free Press Trade Paperback with 339 pages. - The use of physical violence against women in their position as wives if not the only means by which they are controlled and oppressed but it is one of the most brutal and explicit expressions of patriarchical domination. The legal right of a man to beat his wife is not longer explicitly recognized in most western countries but the lgacy of the patriarchy continues to generate the conditions and relationships that through force is still supported by a moral order which reinforces the marital hierarchy and makes it very difficult for a woman to struggle again this, and other forms of domination and control, because her struggle is construed as wrong, immoral, and a violation of the respect and loyalty a wife is supposed to give her husband.
