Domestic violence affects 1 in 4 women – that’s more than breast cancer, lung cancer and ovarian cancer combined. Most people think only of physical abuse when they consider domestic violence. Yet, financial abuse happens in 98 percent of all cases of domestic violence and is one of the most powerful ways to control a victim. Abusers employ isolating tactics such as inhibiting their spouse or partner from working or accessing a bank, credit card or transportation.
