Types of Abuse:
Domestic violence takes many different forms.
Physical abuse can range from a shove to a black eye or broken bones and in some cases it doesn't leave any visible marks. All violence should be taken seriously because it usually gets worse.
Emotional abuse Often emotionally abused women are not sure if what's happening to them is domestic violence. When your partner frightens or demeans you enough that it affects your everyday function then you are more than likely experiencing abuse. Emotional abuse can be very damaging and will often lead to physical violence.
Sexual abuse can take many forms. Sexual abuse is generally about control rather than pleasure. You are experiencing sexual abuse if you have been coersed into having sex, forced or pressured to perform uncomfortable sexual acts.
Economic abuse can include taking full control of a persons money, not "allowing" a person to work outside of the home, putting all assets or bills in their name or keeping close track of every penny spent. If you do not have full say in what happens to your money then you are quite likely experiencing economic abuse.
Violence is a Crime. Always call 911 in an emergency.
