Domestic Abuse of Women and Children series

Series consists of a complete draft of the report entitled: Battered and Blamed: A Report on Wife Assault from the Perspective of Battered Women, co-authored by the Women's Research Centre and the Vancouver Transition House in November 1980. The report is based on a combination of case studies and surveys. At Vancouver Transition House and Munroe House, a second-stage housing facility and subsidiary of the YWCA, a Christian-based organization that provided financial resources and administrative support to Munroe House, women were interviewed individually and asked to fill out questionnaires on themselves, their spouses, and their children to construct a profile of battered women and their experiences. Transcripts of the women's responses were recorded in writing and included as a permanent record. In addition, interviews were conducted over the telephone and in person. The study's goal was to gather information on domestic violence from the perspective of women. However, the Women's Research Centre also looked at how women's shelters assisted women once they reached a transition house by conducting interviews with the staff members who ran them.
Additionally, the Women's Research Centre examined the responses of various levels of Government, Social Services, private-practice physicians, hospitals, out-patient units, school programs, clinical nurses, community care teams, obstetrical nurses, pre-natal teachers, and clinical psychologists to the issue of domestic violence and children. Furthermore, the report examined the circumstances behind domestic violence, the consequences of this abuse, and how best to deal with it. Finally, it concluded by offering a summary of the report, a conclusion of the findings, and future recommendations. Series includes original research proposal, budgets, four large flip-chart sheets of paper used in Women's Research Centre workshops, "Herstory of Transition House / Women's Research Centre Project," handwritten and typed notes, agendas, project outlines, statistics, charts, interview guides, research guides, self-evaluation guidelines, evaluation sheets, file sheets, interview transcripts, correspondence, draft reports, various reports concerning Transition House and Munroe House, Transition-House and Munroe-House residents, and Transition-House and Munroe-House staff, completed and blank questionnaires, project reviews, literature reviews, research project statement of purpose, hard copies of various presentations, pamphlets, articles, fact sheets, invoices, purchase orders, address lists, financial ideas, meeting minutes, grant proposals and funding requests, memos, news reports, seminar registration forms and attendance sheets, worksheets, various theoretical models, and a glossary of legal terminology.
