Closing the Gender Wealth Gap: Intersections of Intimate Partner Violence and Economic Security of Women – Oct 19

Posted by Women's Way on October 12, 2021

Domestic and dating violence, or intimate partner violence (IPV), is a global crisis that has short- and long-term effects that negatively impact the independence and economic security of survivors. Statistics show that over 27 percent of women in the United States have experienced sexual violence, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime, compared to 11 percent of men. Even further, studies show that 74 percent of survivors report staying with an abuser for economic reasons.

To learn more, join WOMEN’S WAY for a powerful panel discussion about the intersections of intimate partner violence and the economic security of women.

This is an online event on October 19, 2021 from 4-5:30 PM EST.
