Scandal Star Kerry Washington Brings To Light A Under-Discussed Form of Domestic Violence [Video]

Kerry Washington recently premiered in a PSA on a under-discussed but frequent form of domestic violence: Financial Abuse. The goal of the video is to help Allstate Foundation raise awareness about domestic violence and the critical role that financial abuse plays in domestic violence situations.

In the video Washington statements:

One in four women will be a victim of domestic violence. Financial control is almost always a weapon of choice for abusers because when a victim’s access to cash is taken away or her credit is destroyed or even her employment is jeopardized, it becomes nearly impossible for her to leave.
