Experiencing gender-based violence often throws victims into a complex relationship with state policy and programs, from family court cases to child services involvement to incarceration. In this panel, we’ll explore various aspects of systems involvement for women on the margins, asking questions about what it means to be targeted by coercive systems, to attempt to rebuild a liveable life using non-profit and state programs, and to be shuffled between systems by authorities. What kinds of expertise are embedded in these webs of systems involvement? What kinds of policies and programs can we imagine that would provide more autonomy?

Panelists will provide a “lightning round” overview of their work and then respond to questions from facilitators.

This event is presented by the Initiative on Gender-Based Violence and Sexual Harassment at IRWG.
