BD2412, would you be willing to undo your move to "battered woman defense"? This is known as "battered woman syndrome". The original title in 2005 was "battered wife syndrome", which was moved to "battered woman syndrome" in 2006.

- I am wondering whether there is considered to be a condition distinct from the legal defense. bd2412 T 01:30, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
- So far as I can see, the legal and medical sources refer to it as "battered woman syndrome" (BWS), and it was developed by those sources around the same time (mid-1990s) in response to the same cases (e.g. PMID 8668013). Some sources refer to the "battered woman syndrome defense" (e.g. PMID 7606702). But it should all be at one article. The term "battered woman defense" is not the common name.
