No Room of Her Own: A Literature Review on Women and Homelessness

No Room of Her Own: A Literature Review on Women and Homelessness

Since homelessness was previously viewed as a male experience and problem, gender has not been a factor in much of the literature on this topic, but this is changing with the growing numbers of homeless women. This report is based on a review of the recent literature on women and homelessness, including the role of violence against women, health factors, and shelter provision. A brief overview of regional field reports on women’s homelessness in Canada is included, as are recommendations for future research
