Welcome!

Volcano Press has been publishing books on domestic violence and womenís health for forty years.

Forty years ago, the domestic violence movement consisted of a handful of grass-roots shelters, struggling to survive.

And yet the struggle to end domestic violence is still a movement. Although today there is the federally funded Violence Against Women Act (authored by Senator Joe Biden), and many dedicated community agencies, activists, counselors, attorneys, law enforcement, and caring families and friends, there is still a long way to go.

We are living in a time of violence. "33 MILLION is the number of U.S. adults--representing 15% of the population--who say they have been victims of domestic violence." (Source: Harris Poll)

If we can develop tools and understanding to effectively stop intimate violence, perhaps we can develop tools and understanding to end all violence in our time.

Towards this goal, we continue to pledge our allegiance. We hope that the Volcano Press books you see listed here will be of assistance.



New From Volcano Press
Dr. Ludy Greenís introduction to the battered womenís movement took place when she volunteered in a shelter in Washington, D.C. many years ago. She immediately saw the need to assist victims of abuse and trafficking by placing them in the workforce--her theory being that financial independence would fulcrum these women away from their abusers, by providing them with the necessary skills to earn a living.

Under the careful guidance of Dr. Green, Second Chance Employment Services has assisted women by outfitting them with new clothing, training and the commensurate confidence with which to interview for and hold a job. This concept of establishing employment for victims of abuse and trafficking is a solution oriented step in overcoming abuse.

Along the way, Dr. Green tapped a nerve--engaging politicians, CEOs of large corporations, Congress and the United Nations to acknowledge and embrace her vision. In 2013, she was instrumental in providing some new language for the updated Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

Through employment a woman can gain her independence, her well being and her dignity to ultimately distance herself from her abuser. Dr. Greenís book is a road map for this journey.
