Tech abuse session… the event focused on tech abuse and how to get tech to women who need it…. 1/
What is Technology facilitated abuse?

It’s a form of controlling behaviour that involves the misuse of tech in order to control, harm, coerce, stalk, threaten another person !!! It happens every day and abusers are finding different ways to use it… the impact… 2/
Abusers tactics are still the same, they just now have more reach, they can track, spy, stalk all from their armchair. People suffering tech abuse feel they have no escape 😢 3/

'Big Eyes' (2014) was on the TV the other day. It doesn't mention abuse or #CoerciveControl and most disturbingly (or well-fittingly) it is a Weinstein production but it is actually an excellent watch to follow the dynamics of coercive and controlling behaviour and its impact./1
The story begins with Margaret just having left her husband and the father of her daughter. He is described as controlling. We get a feeling of her escaping an abusive home. He attempts to remove her from M's care by claiming that she is 'mental unwell'./2
M attempts to rebuild their life. She gets a job in a new city and channels a lot of her love, energy and time into her paintings. She meets Walter while selling paintings on the street. She is in a vulnerable place and needs stable people that she can trust and lean on. /3

🧵 The question ‘why do women stay with abusive partners?’ could be vastly improved with interjection of the word ‘some’. *Some* women stay. But/and in fact most leave, just not as quickly as they or we would sometimes want. Let’s help people understand why: #DomesticAbuse
Contrary to what can seem like the obvious way to achieve safety, leaving is one of the most dangerous things a woman can do: 41% of women killed by a partner or ex-partner in 2018 had left or tried to do so; 30% were killed within a month, and 70% within 12 @FemicideCensus
95% of cases of domestic abuse involve economic abuse, which limits victims’ freedom. Without access to money, leaving is very (enormously) difficult - find out more from @SEAresource

#OrangeTheWorld - A thread on reproductive control, coercion and entrapment 🧵

As a #trapped populations scholar, I have lately spent a lot of time thinking about reproductive #coercion, #control and #entrapment. (i)
The #familycourts appear to fail to understand, acknowledge and interrupt these dynamics of #coercivecontrol in their current system. (ii)
Many perpetrators of #coercivecontrol will already begin to put pressure on or introduce the idea of a child during the early love bombing phase. (iii)

Make this make sense to me 🧵@JudiciaryUK & @MyCafcass say I cannot see my children ever again until I complete 3-5 years of very specific therapy. @NHSKentMedway refuse to provide this treatment… Because there is nothing wrong with me other than trauma & grief - I’ve pleaded
I’ve begged, I’ve screamed, I’ve cried and cried, I’ve said without the treatment I’ll never be allowed to see them. I’ve been begging for 3 STRAIGHT YEARS. Their response @GregClarkMP is that I don’t have any mental illness, just substantial and soul destroying separation grief
So, The entire medical @NHS do not recognise the horrific diagnosis given to me and accepted by the courts as valid at all. But the court does not accept the @NHS medical response as valid either? No private psychologist in the country will agree to the @KentSocialCare terms

Let’s talk about the chronic low self-esteem following a campaign of psychological and emotional abuse.

We live in a world that sees physical violence as harmful and psychological/emotional abuse as minor.

A significant reason is down to the fact that physical violence is easier to evidence and so, therefore easier to *SEE*.
And whilst this is true, it fails to understand and acknowledge the severe harm that is inflicted in the absence of physical abuse.

And it’s deep-rooted longevity.

“On one occasion, she said, male officers taped her phone to the ceiling, telling her: “We’re gonna watch your arse when you climb on the table.””

How a dead officer’s iPhone exposes misogyny, corruption and racism in a police force
Ricky Jones, a retired police officer knew where many of Gwent police’s skeletons were buried, but it wasn’t until his death that his own began to emerge.

In 2020, he jumped to his death from a bridge.

He left behind his wife and three daughters.
To the outside world Jones was a respected former copper and family man. But behind closed doors he subjected his family to decades of #domesticabuse.

Let’s talk about the trauma of not being believed.

Too many of us have personal experience of not being believed by a person we trust.

Or of going to the police to report a crime (domestic abuse, rape or assault, for example) and not being believed…
What is it like to go to someone you know and trust, or to report to someone who is supposed to protect you, and to be ignored, dismissed, not believed or accused of lying?

Today is Supporting Male Victims of Domestic Abuse Day as launched by MANKIND INITIATIVE. Although at Break the Silence UK we are limited to the support we can offer, we do have our publication "Break the Silence - a Support Guide for Male Victims of Domestic Abuse"
This is available from our publisher, amazon and Waterstones. Not only has this been useful for male victims but also to professionals and family members.
"I can highly recommend Lee's book! As a male domestic abuse survivor myself, I found it to be an extremely accurate and fascinating read. Reading each chapter saying to myself 'yep, she did that' and 'yes, she behaved like that' and 'my god I didn't even realise that was abuse!

3-my fault to be abused & for Wing to harm me physically?

Wing from #Animez_UK calls himself ‘eternal’ who never goes away & stops techabuses me.
-A serial #stalker will find his way to stalk & monitor me.
-I never send tweets, he stalks my tweets.
-I never contacted him, he forces himself in to techabuse me.
#DAVRO #coercivecontrol Image
How can I stop speaking up when he never stops the #techabuse to me which is equally serious to physical abuse? A complex case doesn't degrade its seriousness when the scars and injuries are less evident to physcial and sexual abuse. #Animez_UK #coercivecontrol #domesticabuse

1/ FiLiA is driven by the passion + dedication of its team.

Our annual event is unfunded and organised by volunteers. In 2019 we measured the Woman-hours that made FiLiA happen ... 8,344! It's more now, as FiLiA has grown.

Some things along the way ...
2/ We took FiLiA out of London to reach more Women and to grow the movement. Our CEO moves every year to hear from and engage local Women.

We gained charitable status.

We started the Friends of FiLiA scheme to support Women to participate in FiLiA.…
3/ We've held FiLiA in #London #Manchester #Bradford #Portsmouth

1,350 tickets were sold last year. We anticipate that #FiLiA2022 in #Cardiff will be even bigger

So far Women from 62 countries have made their way to FiLiA to speak.

1/. Tmw is the 1st anniversary of #Turkey’s withdrawal from the #IstanbulConvention on violence against women

The message it sent out - that men who violently abuse women can carry on with impunity - is dangerous

So what has happened over the last year?
2/. A year after #Turkey withdrew from the #İstanbulConvention, research by @hrw has revealed how women facing domestic violence are being failed

Restraining orders aren’t enforced

Women are face recurring violence & even murder whilst ‘under protection’
3/. “Every day we wake up to news of another woman killed by a lover, an ex, a husband or stranger”

At least 342 women were killed in #Turkey in 2021

In the face of escalating numbers of femicides the govt should have implemented the #IstanbulConvention!…

1/ Bill, l #Australia is NOT "the answer" to the next #pandemic if all countries responded the same

#disease, #poverty, #child dev dont go on vacation for a #pandemic. All of these will always lead to > death than the pandemic if Australian measures are enacted

We'll explain...

1) #UNICEF has >500M in severe poverty due to measures advocated by you and #Australia and NZ. 1:10 will die from severe poverty

Conservatively, that is > 10M deaths. & If all had done that millions more would die for just poverty

And #children die the most from poverty
2) 15M #cancer #patients need #Treatments. Over 50% aren't compliant & new diagnoses are down ~70%

Combined, we have ensured from #COVID19 measures the deaths of 5-10M cancer patients, conservatively

Those #s increase with a global #Australian / NZ response

I’ve just found out my friend/mentor/person I love/ person I look up to…..

Is an abuser.

A 🧵

Someone has just told you that the person you know, the person who is your friend, your mentor, your confidante, your loved one, your family member, your associate, your colleague, your volunteer, your fundraiser, your boss, your priest, your therapist, your teacher

is an abuser
What do you do?

Believe the victim. That’s how it goes, right?
Believe the VICTIM.

But this doesn’t SOUND like the person you know.
This doesn’t sound like the person you love, respect, look up to, admire, rely on, depend on, collaborate with.

This doesn’t sound like them.

#SupremeCourt to hear Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking enforcement of 'network assistance' to victims of domestic violence.
ASG Aishwarya Bhati: We would seek some time to file our response.

Adv Shobha Gupta for petitioner: It seems like the matter is not of importance for the Government.

Court: Ms Shobha please be considerate, the enactment has been introduced long ago.
We'll allow 3 weeks for it, Ms Bhati

He hasn’t hit me or punched me or strangled me or threatened to kill me.
He hasn’t done any of that, he’s not like that. He’d never hurt me. He’s not like that.
He doesn’t hit me. He’d never hit me.

But he pushed me against the wall, when I got a text from a boy and said he was jealous.

I blamed myself for making him feel sad and stopped talking to this boy.

I went to the #RoyalAlexandriaHospital today to support the hospital staff being #harassed by #AntiVaxxers. I stayed until shortly after 3 pm but the time I was there was... Eventful.

#AbLeg #RAH #Antimaskers #PPC
First, we met THIS "gentleman," who I will call Mr. PPC because he showed up in a grey convertible with a #PPC sign on the dashboard, and a decal at the top of the windshield saying Wildrose. He parked on the grass and came out with a megaphone straight for us. Image
Mr. PPC here gave us three different sob stories about a cousin who relapsed into opioids, a brother-in-law who shot himself, and a third person I don't remember, who died.

Mr. PPC was very adamant (yet completely unclear) that all three deaths were a result of "the lockdown."

1. Gender neutral services do not work for women who have suffered #DomesticAbuse #sexualassault. A thread about a woman who stayed at one of our refuges and her experience
*posted with permission
2. Eleanor (not real name) reached out for help to a service for victims of #DomesticAbuse. Her male advocate met her in person. He said in a meeting that she was flirtatious. She immediately felt like she had done something wrong.
3. Her instinct was that he was interested in her sexually but after he said she was flirting she immediately thought it was her fault. He then proceeded to breach other professional boundaries by messaging her inappropriately about other things not related to #DomesticAbuse
