Please note time is local time (NY time).

When individuals are economically reliant on abusive partners or an abusive family, finances become a tool for manipulation and control. Most often the victims of economic violence are women, whose freedom to spend their own money and make their own decisions is taken away. This financial power imbalance hinders many from breaking free from violent relationships or may force them back into the abuser’s grasp. 


Discover insights, strategies, and real-world solutions to address this complex intersection, shaping a path towards a safer, gender-equal, and economically empowered future for all.
