Join us as we talk with Margo Lindauer, author of "Damned if you do, damned if you don't: Why multi-court-involved battered mothers just can't win." As Lindauer states in her book, "Being a good mother is difficult. Being a good mother and a victim 1 of domestic violence 2 is even harder. The different and often competing expectations placed on battered mothers in the juvenile (child welfare), 3 civil/trial, 4 criminal, and family 5 court systems present a profound and befuddling problem. In this Article, I intend to identify the difficulty and uniqueness of being both a mother 6 and a victim of domestic violence, investigate the tension and conflict among different judicial systems, and proffer some suggestions for reform."
