Herself Shows The Obstacles Abused Women Face In A Patriarchal World

Herself is a tale of struggle and triumph that is at once commonplace and, sadly, far too rare. The movie is not just a story of abuse and breaking free, but an indictment of a global system, that castigates, questions and endangers women with no regard. The film does not just show the abuse and trauma women go through in an abusive relationship. It also shows the trauma they often experience in court, the catch-22 system that often isn’t about help and freedom, but keeping them in another form of financial dependency.
