There is still a myth that domestic abuse doesn't happen to men. It does! It can happen to anyone.
Domestic abuse, or domestic violence, includes a range of abusive behaviour (either physical, sexual, financial, psychological or emotional) between people 16 years or older, who are or were intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender.
You may know a sister, brother, mum, dad, son or daughter, colleague, neighbour, cousin or friend who is experiencing abuse behind closed doors.
The concept of ‘honour’ is for some communities deemed to be extremely important. To compromise a family’s ‘honour’ is to bring dishonour and shame and this can have severe consequences. The punishment for bringing dishonour can be emotional abuse, physical abuse, family disownment and in some cases even murder.
