Eye-opening film about hidden abuse
20 March 2019 | by PotomacPunchySee all my reviews

Ever wonder why women don't "just leave" abusive relationships? Watch this series and find out. Three women per *day* are murdered in the United States by someone they know. Often their killer is a former intimate partner and the murder takes place within a month to a year after the victim leaves the relationship. This series explains how people like John use coercive control tactics (Google it) to manipulate and abuse victims using methods that are immoral but do not break the law. This film also illustrates how it's difficult for victims of coercive control to obtain meaningful help from the police, why a restraining order can escalate violence, and most frighteningly, why it's difficult for victims to obtain legal help; It's not due to lack of financial resources-something much more terrifying. This happens every day right under our noses. This could be happening to you, your sister, a co-worker, or a next-door neighbor. Enlighten yourself.
