My friend Koty is part of a group of women in Israel who are working to support new legislation aimed at improving the government response to domestic economic abuse. At this time there is little that the government does that is effective against that kind of domestic violence. Economic abuse occurs when one spouse has control of the money in a relationship and uses that to take power over the other, often forcing them to beg for money for even basic needs. I see it as related to the patterns of enslavement. The consequences can be very serious psychological damage and even physical conditions.

The group Koty is part of is a victims' (survivors') action group. Let's support Koty and her friends by signing her petition and passing on the message.
