Women’s experiences of homelessness are distinct from men’s and often shaped by gender-based violence
A significant proportion of women experience violence, and statistics consistently show that violence is perpetrated against women at much higher rates than against men. Violence against women in the home has also increased significantly during the Covid pandemic. This policy paper, written in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University's Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research, explores gender-based approaches to homelessness policy.
