dc.description.abstract This article discusses immigrant women from Central America who are leaving violent circumstances in their neighborhoods and in their homes and are often survivors of gender-based violence and gang violence. The article contrasts homicides of women in El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala with women in Maryland. The authors summarize their qualitative research in which women narrated their stories and the multiple types of violence they experienced and how government policies and socialized beliefs about gender effected their lives. This article is part of a series in the 2019 Winter issue of Translational Criminology Magazine. The articles are based on presentations from the Division on Women and Crime (DWC) of the American Society of Criminology, during a fall congressional briefing on Translating Research to Policy: Improving Justice for Women and Girls.
