Picture - Expanded definition of domestic violence could help survivors recover from financial abuse

If the Senate reauthorizes the Violence Against Women Act this year, the legislation could include for the first time a clear definition of economic abuse, a type of control that can prevent survivors of domestic violence from reclaiming their lives.

The bill would follow one that passed in Connecticut in June that also broadened the definition of abuse to include financial control or limiting of financial resources by a partner.
