Watch Kerry Washington's PSA on Financial Abuse in Relationships

Scandal star Kerry Washington is speaking out about a form of abuse that rarely gets talked about. As brand ambassador for The Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse initiative, Washington is raising awareness about financial abuse, one tactic that is occasionally used to keep the abused person in a relationship.
Financial abuse occasionally involves the abuser limiting a victim’s access to cash, which can prevent them from leaving the relationship. On top of that, career sabotage or putting the person in debt can become tactics in which the abuser can assure that their victims have no other recourse but to stay with them. source:TheRoot
