Anna Mullany believes all women should have the same opportunity and access to vital services during and/or when leaving an abusive relationship. Yet not all women are afforded this opportunity. Rural women in Vermont lack the ability to do so due to two primary factors: location and income. With an explicit focus on women’s isolation, this project seeks to reduce barriers for remote rural women to receive adequate care and support from the WFC. A crisis center is a vital health and wellness support to women facing abuse and a crucial service when attempting to flee and/or acquire protection. The conversations surrounding policing is an important addition as additional funding diverted to social services could help to address health inequity.
