The Symposium on Women and Homelessness: Vectors of Invisibility symposium, is a one-day, student-led event that connects researchers, practitioners, policy makers and government representatives to discuss factors, conditions, gaps and obstacles contributing to women’s hidden homelessness in Montreal. Productive policy interventions in housing and social support services with the goal of assisting various groups working with homeless individuals will be explored, in an interactive space that integrates keynote speakers, presentations by local organisations and shelters, and roundtable activities. Attention will be called to structural and individual level processes leading to women’s hidden homelessness, especially how gendered aspects of women's experiences contribute to their invisibility.
Co-sponsored by the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture (CISSC).
