The purpose of this study is to determine if prevalence, frequency, and severity of IPV differ by rurality and to identify variance in geographic access to IPV resources (November 2011).
This study is one of the first to examine the protective order process, barriers, and outcomes by combining qualitative and quantitative research in rural and urban areas (July 2005).
Despite the alarming rates of IPV across the U.S., women in rural areas face obstacles that impair their ability to get help. Lack of an adequate health care and criminal justice system are barriers for these victims of domestic violence. This study examines the many challenges that rural victims face, and how to create a coordinated, systemic change in rural America (March 2015).
This study explores the phenomenon of DV in an underserved rural Texas county with emphasis on the experiences of selected residents. The factors discussed in this study include social control, law enforcement, churches, and community attitudes, all of which were factors contributing to isolation (August 2002).
Few studies have examined the influence of neighborhood context on intimate partner femicide (IPF). In this study, the authors examine the role for neighborhood-level factors in differentiating urban and rural IPFs in Wisconsin (2013).
This paper chronicles the Duluth Project, which is a pioneer in coordinated community responses to domestic violence and sexual assault. The Duluth Project is a system of networks, agreements, and applied principles created by the local shelter movement, criminal justice agencies, and human services programs developed in northern Minnesota (January 1997).
