Teaching Resources: Domestic Violence & Poverty
For those of you who aren't familiar with the In Her Shoes exercise produced by the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, it is a fabulous resource for teaching how multiple systems affect the ability of victims of domestic violence to escape. The coalition also produces an "Economic Justice" edition that helps students understand why low-income victims are at much higher risk of continued severe abuse.
The WSCADV Website provides more information about this resource and an order form for the materials.
