Financial Independence For Women Against Domestic Abuse
Organized by: Maria Golseth
Event Name: Agents of Change 2016
The Truth: Domestic violence affects one in four women in her lifetime – that’s more women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined. Most people think only of physical abuse when they consider domestic violence, yet financial abuse happens in 99% of all domestic violence cases.
The number one reason domestic violence survivors stay or return to an abusive relationship is that they don’t have the financial resources to break free. Physical abuse leaves bruises and scars. Financial abuse is an Invisible Weapon that traps victims in abusive relationships.

What is Financial Abuse? Financial abuse prevents victims from acquiring, using or maintaining financial resources. Financial abuse is just as effective in controlling a victim as a lock and key. Abusers employ isolating tactics such as preventing their spouse or partner from working or accessing a bank, credit card or transportation.
We are on a mission to help the women in our community recover their financial independence and break the cycle of domestic violence.
