Domestic Abuse: International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

Thursday, November 24, 2022

The World Health Organisation estimates 25% of women aged 15-49 years old who have been in a relationship, have suffered physical violence from their partner. This domestic abuse can result in mental and physical health consequences for women, and can even sometimes be fatal. It can also affect the wellbeing of those around, such as children and other family members. Domestic abuse can describe physical and non physical events, such as coercion, manipulation, gaslighting, threating, controlling, and many other behaviours. Also, domestic abuse does not apply only to partners; perpetrators of domestic abuse can be any other family member or close relationship. The Crime Survey for England and Wales estimated in 2020 that 2/3 of people experiencing domestic abuse were women.

November 25th is International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and in this webinar we will address how domestic abuse doesn’t remain at home, and as employers, we have a responsibility to support our colleagues who are experiencing domestic abuse. Their experience can also impact the workplace, performance, absence, job security and other individuals in the organisation.
