There is no safety without economic safety
What is economic abuse?
Economic Abuse includes financial abuse and is a form of family violence in which one person controls, exploits or sabotages another person’s economic resources (eg. money, property, transport, employment) limiting their autonomy and threatening their economic security and wellbeing.
The Centre for Women’s Economic Safety invites you to imagine a gender-equal world where women are free of economic abuse: A world where economic safety is an accepted human right, where every adult has their own financial identity, and where women’s and men’s contributions to society are equally valued.
If you're worried you might be experiencing economic abuse, or you’re concerned about someone else, please explore the CWES Financial Safety site for information and services that may be able to help.
