Author(s): Publisher(s):
This paper describes in detail a wide range of disparities and inequities experienced by women of color across the domains of economics, safety, and health. It explains that these outcomes are not the result of individual ambition or aptitudes, as conservatives often suggest, but rather an outgrowth of a web of racialized and gendered rules—policies, institutions, and practices—that have emerged from the United States’ long history of racism and sexism.

Integrating Transgender Survivors into Shelter and Support Groups

Publisher(s):
Traditionally, these services have been restricted to non-transgender women or they have been sex-segregated, excluding male survivors (transgender and non-transgender) or individuals who do not identify within the gender binary (as male or female). A growing number of shelters and support groups affirm that inclusion of survivors of all genders is much easier than some may think.
