What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is about power and control of one person over another. It can be physical, emotional, sexual, mental or financial abuse by your partner, husband or anyone you are having or have had an intimate relationship with. It can happen to any woman regardless of her age, race, sexuality or disability. Abuse can also take place within family type relationships i.e. from son to mother; between siblings; from grandson to grandma; mother to son; etc. Domestic violence is rarely a one-off event and physical violence often escalates in frequency and severity over time. The violence may not happen regularly but other kinds of controlling behaviour may be ongoing, leaving someone feeling off-balance or anxious about their relationship. The abuse often develops slowly over a long period of time, and can start at any point in a relationship, even many years after people first meet. Although every situation is different, there are some common behaviours that link the experience of an abusive relationship. All of these behaviours come from the abuser’s desire to maintain power and control over another person. It important to remember that there are lots of men that do not perpetrate or condone abuse against women.
