Homelessness policy with women at the centre: Surveying the connections between housing, gender, violence and money

Abstract

Not all women who experience housing stress or need homelessness services are (or will identify as) 'escaping domestic violence', but all are affected by being women in a society with entrenched patterns of women being subjected to violence of various kinds. They may also have ongoing impacts from experiences of violence throughout their life-course. Conversely, not all women trying to build lives free of violence need or want homelessness services, but all are affected by housing affordability and need safe and secure homes.
