. Violence and abuse happen everywhere. And this performance represents the stories and the experiences of those women I have met, spoken to or heard about. It touches all of us. "I have had my own experiences of abusive relationships but as patron of Women’s Aid I have spoken to so many other women, listened to what they have gone through and I know how very real the danger is to so many women out there and I’m not going to stop breaking the silence and then shame around this subject because it’s too much and we have to stand up and do something.
"This performance represents the stories and the experiences of those women I have met, spoken to or heard about. "My heart breaks for every single woman and child who suffers from any form of domestic abuse, and while the film shows a range of abuse, I want to send a clear message that you don’t have to be hit to be abused. Coercive control is at the heart of domestic abuse – it is about power and control.”
The video is a incredibly hard watch, highlighting both physical violence and also coercive control whereby the perpetrator controls the survivor including by spying on her, isolating her from friends and family, and denying her access to her own money.
