This valentine’s, Glow is highlighting the rise in cases of technology being used to control partners.
We spoke to one of our customers, Megan*, who “went through hell” when her partner used technology to gaslight and control her life.
“My partner had this habit of putting his sim card in my phone and then he’d press various things.
“I started to realise my call minutes and texts were going down – I had 700 minutes and rarely called anyone and all of a sudden I’d have none left.”
Things then started disappearing or moving in the house: “I put things down in a certain place and I’d go out the room. When I came back in, it would be nowhere to be seen. I knew I’d put it there. Things appeared on my walls, like loads of writing and numbers.
