Today marks day four of 2021’s 16 days of action against Domestic Abuse. Anybody can be a victim; anybody can access help. The team at Ringrose Law are available to guide you through the process so please contact us.
Some women will spend their days living in fear, with no real way of knowing exactly when the next incident will occur. Some women live their life walking on eggshells and others become isolated from the people they know and love.
If somebody tells you something enough times, you start to believe them. That is what life is like for women living with domestic abuse. They suffer low self-esteem, victim blaming and denial but the abuse is not their fault.
There are shelters and refuges available to offer support for emergency housing and charities who can assist with education, support groups or referrals. Ringrose Law can help you start to get your life back and assist with any Orders against the abuser that are relevant.
The World Health Organisation recently found that 1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime. Whilst 27% of women aged 15-49 expressed that they have been subjected to physical and/or sexual violence by their partner.
There are a number of factors which can influence abuse upon a female and remember, this can occur by another female:
- Lower level of education
- History of exposure to abuse as a child
- Witnessing family violence
- Exhibiting antisocial personality traits
- Lower level of access to paid employment
- Lower level of fender equality
- Marital discord
- Communication difficulties
- Health issues
Is this you? We can help BUT IT IS NEVER YOUR FAULT.
