Murdered by my boyfriend
Violence when something was "wrong"
Made it seem as though it was her fault
Control over money - allowance system
Control of where she was living
When pregnant boyfriend made the big decision to keep
Had access to her social media and phone
Started small eg control over who she spoke to
Controlled her clothes
Male gaze - "you're really wearing that?"
Her child witnessed the violence and murder
Stereotypes women weak
left with no parents
17 when she fell pregnant
men as the violent partner
