Rule of Thumb: Introduction


Just a generation ago, it was legal for a man to beat his wife, provided he used a stick no thicker than his thumb. Now a new "Rule of Thumb" across the US makes spouse abuse against the law.

Commissioned by the St. Louis section of the National Council of Jewish Women, this documentary inspires as it informs women how to seek legal protection from abuse.
