What Is Woman Abuse?

Woman abuse is any act of gender-based violence, abuse, mistreatment and neglect that women experience in their intimate, family or dependent relationships. The root of woman abuse is the imbalance of power and control between the woman and the person perpetrating the abuse. This can happen to any woman regardless of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith, abilities, socio-economic status and/or profession. Woman abuse knows no boundaries.
