Economic Abuse and Its Implications on Violence against Women

May 19, 2018
10 AM- 4 PM

Rupande Mehta, MPH

In this workshop, attendees will learn about economic abuse and its impact on violence against women. We will conduct a review of the research so far and examine how little the impact of economic abuse is understood by those outside the system. The scope of wealth that a husband uses to control his wife will also be explained, with close reference to cultural practices of immigrant communities. There will also be a deep dive into the dynamics of customary laws of property ownership and how prosecution for economic abuse should account for the intersection of culture, socioeconomic practices and the hierarchy of ownership in a matrimonial relationship. We will study how the present system and current tools are insufficient to address this problem and what other countries (like the UK) are doing to address economic abuse head on. Attendees will learn possible solutions for economic abuse and what more is needed from an advocacy and system perspective to help survivors of economic abuse.
