Fort Worth Homelessness

Fort Worth Women, Homelessness, & Intimate Partner Violence with Dr. Emily Spence-Almaguer

Wednesday Sep 19 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Intimate partner violence impacts the lives of more than a 1/3 of Texas women, but disproportionally harms women who are homeless and/or living in poverty. Research in Tarrant County has indicated that intimate partner violence appears to be both a cause and a consequence of homelessness. This presentation by Dr. Emily Spence-Almaguer will provide an overview of how intimate partner violence and other forms of victimization differentially impact the lives of women who are homeless and the challenges associated with implementing an effective community response.

About Women and Gender Studies

Fort Worth Women, Homelessness, & Intimate Partner Violence with Dr. Emily Spence-Almaguer
TCU’s interdisciplinary department of Women & Gender Studies puts women, gender, and sexuality at the center of academic investigation. The department promotes inquiry into the intersections of gender with other identity categories; the workings of power in society; and the means of advancing social justice and equality. Through research, teaching and learning, and collaboration, the program fosters feminist and interdisciplinary analysis across social, historical, cultural and global contexts, products and practices.
