See domestic violence from a new perspective.

There's so much more to domestic violence than meets the eye. Isolation coupled with financial dependence can make leaving an abusive relationship extremely complicated — and dangerous. Use this interactive tool to put yourself in the shoes of someone in an abusive situation. Watch as scenarios unfold before your eyes and experience the impact of life-changing decisions.

Experience the realities of domestic violence:

"Leaving an abusive partner is complicated. Victims are often isolated and financially dependent on their abusers. Hard to imagine? See for yourself how difficult it can be to leave."

You can help a victim find freedom.
