Making Connections

We know there are risk factors for domestic violence, but the risk factors for economic abuse touch on multiple levels:

  • Individual: Unemployment and/or low income
  • Relationship: Economic stress
  • Community: Poverty and associated factors, like high unemployment rates
  • Societal: Patriarchal gender norms around employment

With knowing these risk factors, we can look to what strategies we can use to combat these risks, like strengthening a family’s economic security and work-family supports.
