Francine Hughes was married to an abusive man for 13 years. Mickey wanted a subservient wife who was barefoot and pregnant. Francine lived in a shack in Dansville, Michigan with her husband and three children. Mickey would slap her if she tried to dress sexy, when she went into town alone to meet a girl friend, or almost anything else.

After her two daughters and son started to grow up, Francine decided to go back to school at the local community college. Mickey slapped her, threw her books across the room, and tore out some pages. Finally, Francine had enough.
