The Power and Control Wheel provides a useful framework for classifying various forms of coercive control. The framework also illustrates how the behaviours outlined in the wheel are not only reinforced by the actual use of physical and sexual violence but also by the continued threat of such violence.
In the forum we discussed the power and control wheel in relation to gender-based violence in all areas of our lives. Where is the power exercised and how? We gave specific examples in relation to women transport workers and passengers.
