Disrespect doesn't always lead to Violence... But Violence always starts with Disrespect.

I wrote the book "Portrait of my Inner Child" as an Educational & Cautionary Tale.

I have now also started this Petition, because as Martin Luther King once said: "There is power in unity and there is power in numbers."

What is Coercive Control?

Abuse isn't always physical. Coercive Control is an act or pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish, or frighten their victim.

Many feminist psychologists in the 1970s observed the domestic abuse victims that they worked with as living like hostages and coined the term ‘coercive control.’

This insidious form of abuse relies on a range of behaviours or actions that can be very subtle and nuanced. It is dark, dangerous, and depressing. The intention is to exploit, dominate and deprive the victim of their most basic human rights and needs. 

A relationship with a Narcissist/Abuser creates constant internal incineration of your identity. 

Coercive Control is all about treating Women and Children as "beneath" the abuser as opposed to fellow human-beings worthy of respect and care. The Narcissist/Abuser expects and enforces that all your wants, needs, thoughts, feelings, words, and actions are all submissive to them.

Over time, the victim may lose the very essence of who they are, their likes and dislikes, their hopes and dreams, deeming their feelings and their needs and wants as irrelevant – hence the "hostage" analogy.

Experts warn that Narcissism is on the rise, which means that caring is more important than ever.

C'mon Australia: Criminalise Coercive Control. It's already the Law in the UK!

We need to place value on the importance of respect and care, to keep Women and their Children safe.

Please help by signing and sharing this petition. You will help to save lives.

We need to foster Meaningful Relationships, which will lead to a powerful and positive ripple effect throughout the World.
