Understanding the Insidious Nature of Economic Abuse

 "Why does she stay? Despite appearances to the contrary, the decision to stay is not a decision at all. She stays because she lacks the power to leave." Ludy Green

The Huffington Post recently reported on a new book from Ludy Green called: Ending Domestic Violence Captivity: A Guide to Economic Freedom

Even if you don’t have time to read the book, we highly recommend taking a few moments to read their short article.  It does an amazing job of exploring the insidious nature of economic abuse, and the tactics abusers use to control their victims

These issues are exactly why we created Skills for Success, our employability program.  Together, we are help women find a path out of this abuse.  The 10th cohort will graduate this December!
