Abstract: A FACT SHEET OUTLINES ALL THAT IS KNOWN ABOUT THE PROBLEM OF WIFE ABUSE UP UNTIL INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S YEAR (1977). THE GOALS FOR ESTABLISHING A WORKSHOP SHOULD INCLUDE (1) ACQUAINTING PARTICIPANTS WITH THE PROBLEMS OF BATTERED WOMEN; (2) REVIEWING PERTINENT STATE LAW AND ALL PAST AND PRESENT ATTEMPTS TO REVISE ABUSE LAWS; (3) PRESENTING THE FACTS ABOUT ORGANIZATIONS IN MAJOR URBAN CENTERS AIMED AT ADDRESSING THE PROBLEM, SUCH AS COALITIONS, TASK FORCES, AND REFUGES: (4) PRESENTING INFORMATION ON HOW TO SET UP A REFUGE; AND (5) ARRIVING AT SPECIFIC, ACTIVE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR HELPING ABUSED WOMEN. THE USE OF GUEST SPEAKERS, PANEL DISCUSSIONS, AND FILMS IS SUGGESTED TO IMPLEMENT THE VARIOUS GOALS. A LIST OF SPEAKERS, PUBLICATIONS, AND REFUGES IS APPENDED. AS OF THE TIME OF WRITING, THERE WERE NO NATIONWIDE STATISTICS ON WIFE ASSAULT, BUT INFORMATION GATHERED IN SPECIFIC GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS SUCH AS KALAMAZOO COUNTY, MICH., AND MONTGOMERY COUNTY, MD. ARE SUPPLIED. (JSP)
