We would like to share a new research report, Joining the Dots, created and launched last month by Agenda, Alliance for Women and Girls at Risk.

It was funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the it shows that one million women in poverty have experienced extensive violence and abuse.

Joining the Dots is the first research study which combines data on women’s experiences of poverty, mental health, life circumstances, and abuse and violence, to paint a  picture of how different forms of inequality combine in the lives of women in poverty in England.
