Why Doesn’t She Just Leave? - Part 1

One of the most frequently asked questions in relation to domestic abuse is ‘why doesn’t she just leave?’.  Leaving a perpetrator of domestic abuse is seen as the ultimate answer and it is one that many of our services focus upon.  Many practitioners feel frustration when a woman experiencing abuse stays with the perpetrator and, where children are involved, child protection is often invoked on the grounds that she is ‘failing to protect’ those children.  But how many women experiencing abuse are still living with their partner?  And does leaving a perpetrator really mean safety?  Furthermore, how easy is it simply to ‘leave’?
