Many women, children, and men in the world are victims of domestic violence – this is any behaviour that maintains control over a spouse, partner, family member, or girlfriend/boyfriend. Abuse may be expressed physically, emotionally, verbally, sexually, or financially, and you may feel threatened, controlled or coerced.

If you are being psychologically, emotionally or physically harmed, you are not alone. Statistics show that one in three women and one in three men have experienced abuse and domestic violence. If you're looking for support, there are 0 abuse and domestic violence hotlines in United Arab Emirates. Reach out if this is happening:

  • Not allowing you to work or get an education
  • Your partner/family member is constantly trying to convince you you’re crazy and makes you doubt your experiences (also known as gaslighting)
  • Any form of physical harm (hitting, slapping, strangling, kicking, burning, cutting)
  • Being exposed to intimidation and coercion
  • Avoiding certain topics so that you don’t anger your partner/family member
  • Your partner/family member is acting excessively jealously
