A Statewide Profile of Abuse of Older Women and the Criminal Justice Response

General Material

This statewide study in Rhode Island of domestic violence in older women and the response of state authorities found a relatively larger proportion of intimate partner abuse than previously found in adult protective service surveys. Abuse by family members was also found to increase after women reach age 60.
