“What Britney Spears described in her testimony this week is a situation where every element of her life is being controlled by her father through law, violating her human rights. This control, which means that Britney can no longer see her friends and has been told what medication she must take, has been described as “abusive” by the singer and given what we know of the case, not acceptable. ➡️ Coercive control has been illegal in England and Wales since 2015, yet in the US the courts have allowed Britney’s father to be able to exercise control over every part of her life, down to forced contraception and if she can get married. ❗️This horrendous experience must be stopped - women’s bodies do not belong to men, and these decisions are limiting her life choices. Britney has told a court that the arrangement is “abusive” and at Women’s Aid we back Britney’s right – and every woman’s right – to have control over their own lives. Any mental illness experienced by women should never be managed legally or medically in a way that removes their right to freedom, dignity and respect.” - Farah Nazeer, CEO at Women’s Aid. ➡️ If you are experiencing coercive control, reaching out for support can be a difficult but brave first step.

A new report by HMICFRS (Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services) — released today — has acknowledged that the pandemic has put domestic abuse survivors at greater risk, and has praised the police for making good use of technology and working with partners to find new ways to support survivors. "We know that perpetrators used the pandemic and lockdown measures to heighten their abuse and control, and that many survivors and their children were trapped at home with abusers – isolated and shut off from support. Specialist domestic abuse services worked around the clock to support survivors during this extremely challenging year and, as this report shows, worked innovatively with police forces to keep women and children safe."But our research with survivors during the pandemic found inconsistencies in officers’ responses – including those who didn’t respond quickly to reports of domestic abuse, or didn’t take appropriate action to sanction the perpetrator. It is unacceptable that for every four domestic abuse crimes, three are closed with no further action for the perpetrator." — Farah Nazeer, Chief Executive at Women's Aid.Read our full response ➡️ lght.ly/2ehd44a ...
