Theresa May: Our new domestic violence bill will outlaw economic and physical abuse

What do you all think?

She’s right, we all know she is when she talks about the fact there is more to domestic abuse than just the physical side. For some this is the least of their worries. Abusers are very good at manipulating the survivors and isolating them so they become at their weakest, this was certainly worse for me than the punches, kicks and other physical abuse I sustained. I was totally lost in a horrible nightmare with no way out.

This bill should have come in to play a long time ago, not when statistics show that 2million people in the UK are living with domestic abuse daily!

twenty seven years old, survivor of an abusive relationship, mother to one brave, strong willed and loving little girl. Writing this blog for all those looking for answers or a way out, a little bit of reassurance that you can survive too.

  1. I’m so glad that the many faces of domestic abuse are starting to be recognised. If it’s an incomplete picture then survivors can’t get the proper help they need afterwards in their recovery (“you’ve left him so he’s not hitting you anymore, why are you still upset, get over it already” etc). I’m in Australia and this sounds better than what we have. I hope that different countries can each keep pushing others to be better and better.
