Moving on from violence
One in five women experiences domestic abuse. On average, a domestic incident is reported somewhere in Scotland every nine minutes. (2014) Different forms of domestic abuse which include physical, psychological and financial have their roots in gender inequality and in the different power relations between men and women in society. Experiencing domestic abuse can make a woman lose all her confidence and self-esteem. They can become very isolated and find it hard to get back into society. By supporting organisations that support moving on from violence, it helps women deal with their feelings and move forward.
