Literature Review

Luminary’s Literature Review was undertaken to ensure that our mission and approach are responding to a genuine, documented need and are informed by the recommendations of existing research. It involved extensive reading and analysis around the theme of unemployment among women, particularly survivors of gender-based violence.

We read a wide variety of research but attempted to base this piece of work in our ‘home town’ of North East London where Luminary’s work is rooted. We discuss the key barriers to employability for women who have survived gender-based violence and note recommendations for our model, many of which have already been implemented.
