Shelter Movement

Shelters were invented by women not just to escape violent men but also to target the instutional barriers women face that make it nearly impossible for women to leave abusive men. A number of articles highlighting the key issues today are located in this section, including envisioning feminist shelters as modeling the kind of communities we want to build that would reflect women's aspirations of peace, freedom and equality.  The articles are sorted chronologically and by the issue topic.
