Inside Out (Australia)

Who’s really in control at home?

Sign the petition to help make Coercive Control illegal in Australia.


This is not the man she fell in love with. He makes life hell for her. She tries not to upset him and does what he wants, just because it’s easier. She’s scared he’ll take it out on the kids or the dog or her if she makes him angry. He tracks her movements and over time he’s cut her off from her friends and family. He questions her every move. No matter which way you look at it, he’s in control which means there’s no safe way for her to leave the relationsh­ip. Coercive Control is a common form of domestic abuse but there is currently no law against it. If we change the law, we can change the lives of thousands of Australian women who are terrified and at risk in their own homes – from someone they love. If you or someone you know is affected by abuse, call 1800 RESPECT on 1800 737 732.
