CLAUDINE & AMPP: DISMANTLE THE MOTHER’S MOVEMENT
According to Claudine a change is needed in the Mother’s Movement, it should be torn down completely, and she will lead these efforts, along with her hand selected allies “DV orgs, awareness?? seriously?? They need to be dismantled and a new what is needed now– begun.”
AND, “Its out with the old in with the new and dammit what we are doing is not working. The moms know this they are the change and with strategy, political and legal. Now moving because of the strength of mothers coming out — then the movement must to change to support and foster that growth. eg. Barry strategy Representing the DV victim, BMCC learning to lobby… you see old is not good it is oppressive.”
As you read Claudine’s delusional letter, it strongly appears that she thought she was able to control Bancroft, and that she was somehow responsible for his success. Those feelings since have transferred to Barry.
See for yourself…
This is how Claudine described Bancroft, at the beginning of the Mother’s Movement, when she supported him: “Then he published more books, does speaking, became our voice, the voice of the beaten, trembling, terrified battered mother..” (Note: There is NO indication that Bancroft wanted or asked for any recognition for his advocacy work for battered women, nor did he ever take credit for being “the voice” of battered women.)
What is Barry Goldstein doing? Publishing books, public speaking and promoting his own ideas on how on legal strategy and related issues in family court. Goldstein is also promoting his books at the Battered Mothers Custody Conference (BMCC) — which what Claudine says is “profiting off the suffering of mothers”.
What is the difference – Goldstein has Claudine’s support, and he offers Claudine support in return. Goldstein is willing to look the other way when the law is broken by Claudine and the Attack Mothers (AMPP). Goldstein looks the other way when mothers and advocates are victimized, even when it is happening on his own Facebook wall.
Goldstein endorses Claudine’s vision for tearing down the Mother’s Movement because he has a starring role in it.
Claudine Dombrowski is one of Goldstein’s strongest supporters, and on several of Dombrowksi’s attacking blogs, Goldstein is openly promoted by linking his blog, reposting his article or posting his actual photograph. Claudine has created these attack blogs using the names of targeted victims, publishing their personal information (spouse, home address, e-mail, phone number etc) without their consent. On these blogs, Claudine writes vulgar and defamatory articles about the victim–all the while promoting Goldstein on those very sites! Once again, Goldstein shows he is willing to look the other way, and remain silent while an abuser terrorizes her victims.
The hate sites are mentioned in Bill Windsor’s affidavit against Claudine, “She stalks and defames a number of local attorneys, doctors, and social workers by setting up websites in their names. Note that she publishes all of their personal information – name, address, phone, email, and more. These websites were set up before she and her organization and associates began stalking me. It demonstrates a pattern and practice of wrongful behavior by DOMBROWSKI…” (see #7,
How can Barry Goldstein ignore what is happening –isn’t he a domestic violence advocate? This is abuse!
ATW noticed a similar pattern of behavior on Goldstein’s Facebook wall—with the worst of attacks happening in the Summer of 2013. Several mothers contacted ATW to complain. Publicly, AMPP supporters were attacking moms and advocates, using obscenities and disgusting language. One AMPP supporter even outed a protective mom using an alias, and revealed her true identity. It seemed that AMPP supporters were hovering over Goldstein’s wall, provoking and looking for an opportunity to attack. Goldstein’s response included the following: Deleting comments of those attempting to defend themselves. Leaving comments up of those abusing or harassing others. Ignoring the actual abuse. Choosing to work with, and alongside the abusers. To this day, Claudine and AMPP Attack Mothers continue to post on Barry’s wall, and share his support.
In response to Lundy Bancroft’s letter to denounce abuse in the Mother’s Movement, and stop working with abusers, it appears that Barry Goldstein’s response is to rally support for Claudine—his statement is then reposted on a hate blog she created to viciously attack and slander PMA International co-founder, Janice Levinson.

Barry refers to Claudine as a “legitimate protective mom”. What is that? Under whose standard is a “legitimate protective mom”… or “legitimate rape”?
Barry goes on to say that “good work and sincere people are doing to reform the broken system..”
If we are to believe Barry then “good work” would include this hate site, created using Levinson’s name in the blog address without her consent. The “sincere people” who created this blog “to reform the broken system” use profanity, verbal abuse, disgusting sexual jokes and pictures, defamation, identity theft and steal artwork from the Holocaust Memorial Museum in their campaign of harassment. This disgusting blog became the platform where Barry’s support of Claudine was showcased. Again, a similar pattern as Barry being promoted on Claudine’s other hate blogs—this has been going on for years.
Barry then uses “victim blaming” – a common tactic of abusers where they denigrate and blame the victim, often stating they are deserving of abuse, in order to avoid responsibility for their actions. Barry uses victim blaming by stating that both Bill Windsor (Lawless America) and Janice Levinson are just misunderstanding Claudine. Barry moves on to attack Windsor by stating the abuse is just a “personal issue” on his part. And even though stating Levinson is a “friend”, Barry similarly attacks her by reaffirming Claudine’s comments Levinson is “undermining” the Mother’s Movement. No Barry—abuse “undermines” the Mother’s Movement, and efforts to protect mothers and children.
Almost a year has passed since this post was created, and published all over the internet, and Barry has done nothing to dispute its content. Clearly, Barry supports Claudine and the AMPP Attack Mothers, and supports abuse by allowing his words to justify their criminal behavior and also by allowing his name and professional work to be used on blogs that are clearly created for stalking and harassment—to intimidate and cause fear not only to its victims, but to other protective moms and domestic violence organizations as well.
In the months that have passed, Windsor presented evidence before a court of law, and petitioned for a protective order against Claudine—which was granted. That is to say, a reasonable person looking at Claudine’s actions—including screenshots of her various hate sites, online attacks, death threats, instances of identity theft and worse views these actions as criminal and threatening. Those who support Claudine, support criminal stalking, defamation and harassment.
According to Claudine, the “old” Mother’s Movement “is not good, it is oppressive” and “the movement must change..” Barry Goldstein has followed this need for change, and show strong support of Claudine.
Are these the advocates we are to trust?
And what is the Mother’s Movement changing into??
