#NotYourKeeper focuses on raising awareness about domestic violence. While both women and men are victims of domestic abuse, it’s important to note that women are more likely to be abused by a male partner. Men’s superior position in society causes an imbalance of power, which opens the way for abuse towards women, who are placed in an inferior position. They face the threat of losing their children, finances, and home if they leave their abuser. The lack of resources available to women and minimal prosecution of the perpetrators make women easier targets and create a dangerous environment for them.
