Domestic Abuse

What is domestic abuse?

Domestic abuse is persistent and controlling behaviour by a partner or ex-partner which causes physical, sexual and/or emotional harm. It often gets worse over time. It is very common. In most cases, it is experienced by women and children and is perpetrated by men.

  • Domestic abuse is not an isolated incident.
  • It isn’t a fight or an argument.
  • There may be no bruises.
  • It is a pattern of dominating and isolating someone through fear and threats or undermining their self-confidence and self-esteem.
  • It can happen if you live with your partner, or if you don’t.
  • It can be perpetrated by a partner or an ex-partner.
  • It can happen if you have children, and if you don’t.
  • It cuts across class, ethnic and social boundaries.
  • It often involves serious and sustained physical and sexual abuse which can cause injuries and lead to long-term health problems.
  • It can take the form of withholding money and finances, monitoring women and children’s movements, restricting what they wear, who they see, where they go and what they say, on and offline.
  • It can be threatening to or distributing intimate images.
  • It can be manipulating or forcing someone to do something sexual that they don’t want to.
  • It can involve stalking and isolating women from their friends and family.
  • It can involve physical violence.
  • Women (and their children) are sometimes killed by a partner or ex-partner.
