How Do You Know It’s Abuse?
What the Power and Control Wheel Reveals about Intimate Partner Violence
In this conversation about the Power & Control Wheel, advocates, survivors, and upstanders will gain critical insight into how domestic violence is reinforced by systems and social norms.
Why do we steer away from the term “femicide”? Is it because it seems like the word is removed from our own lives? Femicide is a crime of the domestic sphere, typically with an escalating pattern of violence and abuse. Research shows that power and control are almost always the impetus for violence. The struggle is entangled with the roles of women in society: cultural norms, expectations, stereotypes, misogyny, economic disparities, vulnerabilities.
