Mothers living with domestic abuse in Scotland - a tale of poverty and social inequality
CRFR are pleased to publish Briefing No 94, which explores mothers’ experiences of domestic abuse and its relationship to poverty and social inequality. Using data from the Growing Up in Scotland study, this project examines age, socio-economic status and level of education to illustrate how multiple dimensions of poverty overlap and interlock with experiences of domestic abuse. The briefing highlights the importance of considering how social and economic policies, and the design and implementation of state benefits, can serve to ‘trap’ women in abusive relationships and limit their space for action.
This briefing was written by Dr Valeria Skafida, Dr Fiona Morrison and Professor John Devaney.
