FINANCIAL LITERACY AGAINST ECONOMIC VIOLENCE

Global Thinking Foundation actively contributed to the texts and the updating of the second edition of the guide on economic violence, and financially supported its publication, the second edition of the “Guide against economic violence”, by the Shelter for Abused Women in Milan.

Economic violence is one of the most spread expressions of violence against women, yet the most underestimated: the Guide aims to inform women about their economic rights, leading them to recognise the signs of economic violence, sometimes accepted by society, but extremely harming to women’s dignity and independence.

The Guide is conformed to the Istanbul Convention Action against Violence against Women and Domestic Violence: “violence against women is understood as a violation of human rights and a form of discrimination against women and shall mean all acts of gender-based violence that result in, or are likely to result in, physical, sexual, psychological or economic harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life (Article 3)”.
