Please allow me to put the English translation for the video that you can see on that page. The original language of the video in Hebrew.

The TV person says: Physical abuse in the family is well known. It turns out there is also domestic economic abuse, when the husband does not allow his wife access to money of the family, even for enough food and medical treatments that the family needs.

Interviewer: "Where is the fine line between 'extreme stinginess' and 'domestic economic abuse' ? Betty - not her real name - has a convincing answer. Some years ago her husband took over their mutual money and prevents her from any access to it."

Betty: "He decided that he takes all the money we have and he does with it what he wants, and he gives me what he wants to give. I have to deal with the responsible task of keeping our house in good economic shape."

Interviewer: " After many years of domestic economic abuse she felt, that she can not continue anymore in this situation. She decided to turn to different authorities but she had to learn that no one wanted to listen to her."

Interviewer: "Mary also suffers from similar problem. She discovered the existence of domestic economic abuse only after years of happy marriege. "

Mary: "At that time I suffered severe back pain, and I asked my husband to go and see a specialist, in order to get a good treatment. My husband told me every day, he is busy, and eventually we didn't go to visit a specialist. One day I could not suffer any longer. I knew that over the years I had accumulated all kinds of savings, just on my name. I went to visit bank after bank, until I realized that I have no savings at all."

Interviewer: "Betty and Mary aren't alone. Thousands of people suffer from domestic abuse, among them  4 percent suffer only domestic economic abuse.

When they go to the authorities, they are told your husband didn't hit you, thus you do not suffer from domestic abuse.

No one wants to hear that their husband prevents from them access to their mutual money, and he prevents from them enough food and proper medical treatments."

Lawyer : "A woman who doesn't work and her husband beats her will get greater assistance from the authorities than the woman who works and suffers from domestic  economic abuse".
