I looked the meaning for wrench. There are so many meaning for the same word based on the context. Also I found below sentence in the dictionary. What does this sentence means? I'm not getting it. Does it mean - He was holding the girl tightly with both hand and she pushed his hands away forcefully to escape?

I mean whether the man was holing the woman like in this image but forcefully and tightly and she pushed his hands away forcefully to escape?

I tried to wrench myself free from his grip.


It means that she tried to violently twist herself free from his grip. The verb is transitive in this sentence: myself is the direct object, so the first two definitions apply here.

She probably twisted her entire body in all directions rather than merely pushing his hands away forcefully. When one uses a wrench, one twists whatever the wrench is gripping; one doesn't push it.
