Women’s Experience of Poverty in Context of Power Inequality and Financial Abuse in Intimate Relationship.
Poverty is one of the major problems in Poland. According to the statutory border of poverty, there are about 7,3% people who are poor (Poverty in Poland 2010). It is not surprising then that many researchers are preoccupied with this problem. Today, a lot of quantitative research is conducted by institutions like OBOP and GUS (J. Bielec 2007;. Baczewski 2008; Deniszczuk 2007). Also, qualitative studies are carried out (Tarkowska, 2000; Warzywoda-Kruszyńska 2001; Golczyńska-Grondas 2004; Nalaskowski -2007; Zabielska 2007).
