Selected Research Results on Violence Against Women | National Institute of Justice - 0 views

    "Family violence researchers agree that low income is a risk factor for partner violence. It is not only severe poverty and its associated stressors that increase the risk for partner violence; in addition, the higher income is, the lower are reported intimate violence rates. Having a need for domestic violence services significantly impaired women in finding employment under welfare reform. Reductions in Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) benefits have also been associated with an increase in intimate partner homicide."

The Sexual Victimization of College Women - National Institute of Justice Report 2000 - 0 views

  •  
    "College campuses host large concentrations of young women who are at greater risk for rape and other forms of sexual assault than women in the general population or in a comparable age group. Based on their findings, Bonnie Fisher and her colleagues estimate that the women at a college that has 10,000 female students could experience more than 350 rapes a year- a finding with serious policy implications for college administrators."

Making Our Voices Heard - 1999 - Genie Potter, KCW - 1 views

  •  
    The opening section of "The Future Well-Being of Women in Kentucky" published in 1999 as a response to the "Report on the Status of Women in Kentucky" - I enjoyed very much the many meetings and conversations with a diverse group of women activists from all over Kentucky that were involved in the making of this report. (NOTE: to progress through this e-book, it works best if you simply change the chapter number in the URL because the hyperlinks among pages are not always consistent.)
