On average, someone in Pennsylvania dies every three days, as a result of domestic violence. Four women in the United States are murdered each day by an intimate male partner. "In the Fig Tree" is the result of a forum in which the voices of victims of domestic violence could be heard directly. They gathered; they laughed; they cried; they wrote. As you turn the pages of this book, what comes through are the voices of a group of survivors whom Pittsburgh's Crisis Center North has had the privilege of serving. Often, they choose not to speak of their respective victimization directly, but do so in less blatant, often more creative ways, capturing the impact that violence has had on their lives. "In the Fig Tree" is a book which helped its creators understand and derive meaning from the violence that changed their lives forever, while giving readers a unique glimpse into their world. It is a book which honors the voice of the survivor and the story that she tells. All proceeds from the sale of this book go directly to Crisis Center North to provide free services to victims and to fund violence prevention education.
