We’re shedding a journalistic light on the economics of leaving an abusive relationship.

Why we care: Each week, two British women are murdered by their current or former partners. Women are often blamed for the violence they suffer because they didn’t “just leave.”

How we’re solving this: By investigating the economics of leaving an abusive relationship through extensive interviews with survivors across the UK. Women's eNews and British reporter Jess McCabe will highlight women’s voices on this issue and analyze how the economic impact of domestic violence is changing.

The hard fact is that money can play a powerful role in why domestic violence victims stay with their abuser. Sometimes this takes the form of financial abuse - for example, the abuser keeping control of the victim’s bank balance.

Our news reporting will highlight the voices of women directly affected. In addition, we’ll analyze how the economic impact of domestic violence is changing as a result of recent changes to government policy including welfare changes and the introduction of Bedroom Tax. 

With your support, we’ll draw more attention to this significant issue, and support the mainstream media’s ability to report on it further by providing the framework for a nuanced, sensitive approach. 

No other news organization has the global focus and sensitivity to women’s voices that Women's eNews has. Women's eNews creates impact by:

  • Helping set up the news agenda for conventional media;
  • Influencing opinion leaders and policymakers;
  • Serving as a resource and catalyst for rights organizations and activists;
  • Uncovering injustices, drawing attention to issues, disseminating information, and empowering readers.

Help us support journalism that puts women in the picture.
