  1. Women's perspectives on homelessness.

    Article - En anglais

    An increase in the number of individuals who are homeless since the 1980s has made homelessness a major social, economic, and political problem in the United States.

    The number of homeless in this country is estimated as high as 3 million, with women and children constituting the fastest growing subgroup of this population.

    A study of eight homeless women using a shelter in a southeastern city was conducted to explore the experience of homelessness from the women's perspectives.

    A modified ethnographic approach using a semistructured interview provided qualitative data.
