Abstract:

This study examined components of empowerment among residents in a domestic violence shelter. Two categories of tensions between ideals of empowerment and lived experiences of residents emerged: (1) Empowerment as Social Control and (2) Empowerment as Aspirational Dissonance. We propose a model of emancipation that problematizes empowerment for DV survivors.
