    We all recognize that physical abuse is wrong, but what about the more subtle forms of emotional abuse? Emotional abuse can destroy self-esteem through a pervasive, constant campaign of criticism, isolation, and intimidation. In It’s Not Like I Hit Her, actors portray scenes based on real life stories, which show the various forms emotional abuse may take. Recovering male abusers explain how and why they used emotional abuse to control and demoralize their women partners, and women survivors reveal the damaging impact that emotional abuse had on their lives.
