be in an abusive relationship if someone:

includes hitting, pushing, shaking, or
kicking.
• threatens to harm you if you leave
the relationship
• threatens to harm themselves if you
leave the relationship
• forces you, or tries to force you, into any
type of sexual act that you don’t want
• tries to control parts of your life,
like how you dress, who you hang
out with, and what you say
• often shames you or makes you feel
unworthy
• twists the truth to make you feel
you are to blame for their actions
• demands to know where you are at
all times
• often acts jealous or angry when
you want to spend time with your
friends
• makes mean or rude comments on
social media
• demands or asks for your sign-in
RA no. 9262
"Anti-Violence Against
Women and Their Children
Act of 2004" (VAWC).
The Scope of Violence
Violence in this context is not only limited
to physical harm; it can also encompass
psychological, emotional, sexual, or economic
abuse. Any form of manipulation or coercion
employed to assert control over the victim
falls under this category. The law is
designed to protect victims and prosecute
offenders, regardless of whether the violence
is a first-time occurrence or a recurring
Legal Penalties and Sanctions
Offenders found guilty of violating the VAWC
Act may face imprisonment, fines, or both,
depending on the severity and frequency of
the abuse. Additionally, they may be required
to undergo intervention programs or issue
restraining orders, thereby limiting their
contact with the victim. The law also grants
victims immediate and specific remedies, such
as protection orders to safeguard against
Therapeutic Interventions and Trauma
While therapeutic intervention for the accused
is not a legal defense for acts of violence,
attending therapy may be considered by the
courts as a mitigating factor during
sentencing. However, it is important to note
that trauma or psychological issues do not
exonerate someone from the legal
Legal Avenues for Victims
Victims have multiple avenues to address the
situation legally. They can file for a
protection order, a legal injunction designed
to prevent further abuse. Additionally, victims
may also opt to pursue criminal charges
against the abuser. Support services like
counselling, legal aid, and shelters are often
provided to help victims during these difficult
Gender Neutrality
Although the VAWC Act is focused on
violence against women and children, other
laws exist to protect the rights of men
who may be victims of domestic violence.
Both genders have legal avenues available to
address abuse within the confines of a
relationship.
