Economic Abuse Among Senior Immigrant Women

July 26, 2022
1:00 – 2:00 PM

Senior immigrant women occupy intersecting identities of gender, age and immigration. Each of these have been known to impact experiences of gender-based violence and help seeking. Furthermore, these intersections can create specific risk factors related to economic abuse.

This webinar will examine the dynamics and experiences of economic abuse among senior immigrant women and findings from their community-based research with service providers and senior immigrant women with lived experience of economic abuse.
