Lorena Bobbitt made tabloid headlines when, after enduring years of abuse by her husband, she cut off his penis with a knife in 1993. Now a powerful crusader for women’s rights, she tells her story for the first time — to set the record straight and to provide hope and help to victims of domestic violence everywhere.
