cover of Fact Sheet with image of door of houseSafe, affordable, and stable housing can be a protective factor against both sexual violence perpetration and victimization.  This two page fact sheet offers information on the impact of housing costs, housing and various forms of oppression, and how advocates can help. 

This fact sheet is part of the Housing and Sexual Violence Information Packet. The packet also includes: the National Survey of Advocates on Sexual Violence, Housing, and the Violence Against Women Act; an overview; a research brief; an online resource collection; a technical assistance bulletin; and an advocate's guide to housing and sexual violence.

The purpose of this special collection is to provide resources and an introduction to reproductive justice, focusing particularly on the connections between the elimination of reproductive oppression and domestic and sexual violence. Included is a basic definition of reproductive justice, information about the development and the history of the Reproductive Justice Movement, and related resources. Highlighted in this collection are resources that relate to the holistic well-being of women, families, and communities as it pertains to violence against women and reproductive rights and health. "Reproductive Justice & Violence Against Women: Understanding the Intersections" makes connections between the Reproductive Justice Movement and the Sexual Violence and Domestic Violence Movements in the United States to demonstrate the necessity of collaboration. This collection was developed by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, and the Women of Color Network. Additional resources, including book titles, articles, reports, and journals, can be found by browsing the library at the National Sexual Violence Resource Center or sending information requests to resources@nsvrc.org.
