This bilingual, 12-banner exhibition tells the story about nurses working to reform a medical profession that failed to acknowledge domestic violence as a health issue and not a legal matter. Beginning in the late 1970s, these 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.
The National Library of Medicine produced this exhibition and companion website. Guest curated by historian and educator Catherine Jacquet, PhD (Louisiana State University).
