I have to do a term paper for this class, and just found out for sure what the topic is to be on and what is to be included in it. I just started the research process, and have a question that I hope someone can give feedback on. I went ahead and titled this thread after my class, that way all my questions will fit under this topic as they will all have to to with what I am finding for this one paper. :)
The topic title is "Violence Against Women of Color", and the general outline is that we (the students) are to identify the problems of violence, address them, and offer a viable solution. Our professor wants us to use national statistics, but to mainly focus on our county. I have a basic idea of what I want to focus on and a viable solution, but haven't become too solid on any one particular angle yet.
Anyway, I am starting by looking at the options for women in this situation, and found that in my county, we have one center, and the crisis hotline. What I would like to know is what do these centers usually do when a woman calls? I plan on seeing if I can talk to the local center, but would like to have an idea of what happens so that I can formulate my questions accordingly, and be well prepped.
As this paper develops, I know I will have many more questions as my goal is to get virtually every perspective before drafting this paper. :)
Thank you in advance for any feedback. :)
