Reece examines the lobbying done by women's groups in relation to post-separation contact, noting that such groups have focussed all their attentions on the issues of domestic violence. The author poses the question why more emphasis was not placed on the mother's autonomy. She also suggests that the lobbying groups' approach meant that they offered no resistance to the introduction of what she terms 'new, more insidious powers to enforce contact orders' brought in via sections 1-6 of the Children and Adoption Act 2006. 18(4)CFLQ 538
