Lecture: Severely Abused Latinas, Intimate Terrorism, and Killing to Survive
"No Way Out" will focus on Latinas' unique low rate of intimate partner homicide offending when compared to other racial/ethnic groups. We will explore how structural, institutional, and cultural factors shape their experiences of abuse and homicide. Latinas become entrapped within terroristic abusive relationships with limited options for assistance, escape, and survival, leaving them with no way out.
