In a 3- to 5-page paper, identify early theories of domestic violence that preceded the feminist intervention and the subsequent feminist theories of domestic violence.

Specifically, include discussion on the impact of attorneys Laurie Woods and Pauline Gee on the advancement of criminal intervention in domestic violence cases as demonstrated in Bruno v. Codd and Scott v. Hart. Major points should be clearly stated and well supported with facts, details, and historical evidence.
