Abstract

Homeless and at-risk homeless women spend time in homeless centers where their time, behaviors, relationships and bodily functions are dictated by the institutions. This study looks at how women relate to their peers and staff in the homeless center as well as how they relate to menstruation. By both conducting participant observation and interviews at a homeless drop- in center, I aim to understand homeless women’s experiences in the shelter.
