Violence, Women and the Economy


Just in time for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, DSA’s Peg Strobel interviews Dr. Stephanie Riger about the complicated relationship between domestic violence, poverty, and gender roles, about the services available people in abusive domestic situations, and how this has changed over the years.

Stephanie Riger is a Professor of Psychology and Gender and Women’s Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her current research includes the affect of welfare reform on domestic violence and the evaluation of domestic violence and sexual assault services.
