“One Domestic Violence Organization’s Response to Economic Abuse of Women”

Contemporary Issues in Feminist Research. Since U.S. domestic violence shelters opened in the mid-1970s, women have reported a spectrum of abuse by their partners, including tactics that diminished economic stability. Intersectional feminist theory framed a case study of one domestic violence organization’s response to economic injustices. Deb Svoboda, PhD, social work, presents findings that focus on efforts supporting economic well being for survivors as perceived by advocates and women seeking services. Presented by Women’s Studies Center.
