Domestic Violence: The Issue


Domestic violence is still really present nowadays, but not everyone knows what the different types of abuse and the resources you can refer to in case you are in an abusive relationship. 

Domestic violence is an abusive behavior that can happen in any relationship. It is often used to gain power and control over the other person.  Abuse can have many forms. It can be physical, sexual, emotional, economic, psychological or technological. “A particularly traumatic aspect was the violence, a profound violation of my person and dignity. This form of violence left indelible scars, affecting not only my perception of intimacy but also my confidence in future relationships,” said a victim of sexual violence.

More than four in ten women have experienced some form of domestic violence. Approximately 84 percent of the victims were psychologically abused and half were physically and sexually abused. “I’ve never been physically abused… or even verbally abused. Everything was subtle… angry stares… sighs… silences… absences… infidelity… extreme tension as soon as I didn’t submit. I sometimes hoped that he would hit me… at least then I would have been certain that it was violence,” said a woman who was psychologically abused.

You should know that there are a lot of resources if you are in a toxic relationship. SOS Violence Conjugal is a telephone support that offers immediate intervention and referrals to shelters. You can also find a lot of shelters and support centers in your region with the grouping of homes for women victims of domestic violence.

If you need more information you can visit the website for help and resources for victims of domestic violence.
