The Bobbit case, was one of the first scandals that raised the awareness of public opinon on the issue of domestic violence and forced abortions, and Lorena, as you can imagine, became an hero of femist of that time.

She leverages on her experience of a abused woman to help other women, that, likewise her, have been victim of domestic abuses.
