Economic abuse by one partner in a relationship can wreck lives and livelihoods. Vishala Sri Pathma hears from one woman whose husband took control of all of the family money, leaving her without cash to buy food or other necessities. But what can be done to make sure that women have access to money and partners do not take abusive control of the family finances? Vishala hears how banks can take steps to check women are not having their money choices controlled by someone else and from charities that help survivors of domestic abuse to make sure their finances are not being manipulated by an abusive partner.
