Learning Network: Education, Research & Resources on Gender Based Violence
1 in 5 women murdered in Ontario from 1974 to 2012 was 55 years or older. This newsletter, written in partnership with Elder Abuse Ontario and the Centre for the Study of Social and Legal Responses to Violence, features highlights from Danielle Sutton and Myrna Dawson’s important research findings (available in Learning Network Brief 31), examining the killing of 452 older women (55 yrs. & older) in Ontario over a 38-year period (1974 to 2012). We have included commentary on select research findings, offer considerations for working with women who are older, and resources.
