This study examines the effects that economic instability and asset poverty can have on a woman's risk for feminine motivated violence. Specifically, the study investigated factors that predict a woman's likelihood of experiencing feminine motivated violence: income, asset ownership, age, marital status, education status, and number of children. The sample size of this study was 49 participants, collected from a subject pool consisting of Black/African American women, ages of 18 years and older. The procedure consisted of answering a survey composed of demographic questions and questions related to the variables under study. The results indicated that age is one of the variables that predict a woman's likelihood of experiencing feminine motivated violence (p< .0405). The results also showed no statistically significant difference in the risk of feminine motivated violence, based on income (p< .412) or assets (p<.384).
