The paper discusses the phenomenon of economic violence against women by their intimate partners in modern society, one of the least researched aspects of domestic violence against women and in intimate
relationships in general. First, the phenomenon of violence against women is examined as a form of social act connected with gender inequalities within power relations. Then, the term of economic violence is explained, with its forms, consequences and risk factors. The problem of economic dependence of women on their partners is emphasized as well as the connection between economic dependence and domestic violence against women. Furthermore, an overview of women’s rights is given in order to point to the areas in which women’s rights of abused women are violated. Th is is followed by several researches in violence against women in Croatia, with special emphasis on results connected with economic violence. In the end, a short overview of theories is given, i.e. explanatory frameworks for domestic violence and in intimate relationships, with particular emphasis on so called socio-ecological framework.
