Today on the show I’m talking with Teri Yuan, host of the en(gender)ed podcast and advocate for survivors of gender-based violence. In this episode, Teri defines gender-based violence and explains how it differs from violence against women, coercive control, why power is at the root of the gender-based violence and what to do if you’re experiencing abuse in a relationship.

CW: Gender-based violence, abuse, coercive control. Please take care of yourself accordingly.
