Did you know that on average, it takes seven attempts for women to leave an abusive relationship? And unfortunately, the fear of falling into poverty or homelessness is a reality for over 100,000 Australians today.

By providing pathways to economic empowerment and financial independence, the Zahra Foundation ensures that women and their children not only live a life free from violence and abuse but also attain financial stability, avoiding becoming part of this growing number.

Thank you @Marie Gabrieel for stopping by to drop off these lovely bags filled with toiletries and stationary for the women we support. Marie shared her story about wanting to ensure that these bags went to women looking to rebuild their lives.

Its time to break the silence on economic abuse - a form of abuse that often goes unnoticed. Its not just about money, its about power and control. Whether its limiting access to money or manipulating financial decisions, economic abuse traps survivors in cycles of dependency. Recognising economic abuse is crucial in breaking free from its grip.

If you or someone you know is experiencing signs of economic abuse, know that youre not alone. Zahra Foundation provides confidential support, resources, and guidance to empower women to regain their financial independence.

This International Womens Days theme centres on Womens Economic Safety - if you would like to know more about economic abuse, the work Zahra Foundation does to address it or how you can help us raise funds to continue our work please head to

Ann Ginever sistaaa are you back for this?

Shanta Gerbi ?

What does mean to support women and not binary people?

Non binary?

Financial abuse is a type of family violence. It often happens alongside other types of violence, such as physical or emotional abuse. It can leave you feeling vulnerable, isolated, depressed and anxious. It can also take away your independence.

Financial abuse can happen to anyone. The abuser could be your partner, or a family member, carer or friend.

Once you know this, there are ways to get help and regain your independence. Head to www.zahrafoundation.org.au or 1800RESPECT for more information.

Love is in the air….., or so we may think as we celebrate this Valentine’s Day. Today will be filled with couples declaring their love for each other, either in person or on social media. However, there are people who are living in unhealthy and abusive relationships but still play the loving partner for fear of consequences.
In recent years, economic abuse has gained increasing recognition as a form of domestic abuse. while awareness has increased an alarming 3 in 5 Australians lack an understanding of economic abuse.
Economic abuse can take many forms and is often part of a pattern of controlling and coercive behaviour which can sometimes be reinforced with  threats of violence. It can affect people from all walks of life. At the Zahra Foundation we see the effects and that is why we are committed to helping economically empower women affected by domestic and economic abuse.

The Prime Minister of Australia recently addressed the attendees at the Womens Day parliamentary breakfast. He acknowledged that Australia is experiencing an epidemic of violence against women, saying one death is too many, one death a week is an epidemic. He also recognized that due to the tireless work and courage of victim-survivors and advocates, extraordinary Australians like Rosie Batty, we have changed the way we speak about family and domestic violence.

Over recent years, the voices and experiences of women have helped change public perception. Because of women campaigning with the union movement, making it clear that no one should have to choose between their safety and their job – we now have 10 Days Paid Family and Domestic Violence Leave.

Because of women’s advocacy and the work of experts like Anne Summers, emphasizing the way poverty and financial dependency trap people in violent relationships – we’ve delivered more support for single moms.

Because of women making it clear that one of the most basic reasons they do not leave a dangerous situation sooner is that they simply have nowhere safe to go – we are building and funding more crisis accommodation and safe housing around the country.

The Prime Minister recognizes, however, that while women are shaping these policies and driving these responses, ending this epidemic of violence has to involve men stepping up. Because violence against women is not a problem that women should have to solve. Men have to be prepared to take responsibility for our actions and our attitudes. To educate our sons, to talk to our mates. To drive real change in the culture of our sporting clubs, our faith and community groups and our workplaces – including this workplace. And practically every week, whenever we read about another life violently stolen, all of us are reminded of why change is needed and why it’s needed as a matter of urgency. So, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the courageous women who have worked tirelessly to advocate for the women of Australia, and we implore all men to step up, educate their sons, call out bad behavior, and drive real change!
