This Article makes a feminist case for acknowledging women's acts of violence as consistent with-not threatening to-the goals of the domestic violence movement and the feminist movement. It concludes that broadly understanding women's use of strength, power, coercion, control, and violence, even illegitimate uses, can be framed consistent with feminist goals. Beginning this conversation is a necessary-if uncomfortable-step to give movement to the movement to end gendered violence.
