Victimized Again: How the Reentry Process Perpetuates Violence Against Survivors of Domestic Violence


Most women reentering their communities after serving time in jail or prison are survivors of some form of trauma; many are also victims of intimate partner violence. This expansive overview of survivors' reentry issues includes discussion of how the structure of community supervision can compel survivors to remain in unsafe homes by stripping them of other viable options, how abusers often use the processes of reentry and community supervision against them, and how traditional domestic violence responses may not apply.
