Lee, Jina
Graduate Student, Criminal Justice

Jina Lee is a doctoral student in the Criminal Justice program. Jina’s research interests include intimate partner violence and violence against women, with a particular focus on help-seeking behavior among abused women. She is especially interested in exploring the factors that lead to victims’ decisions to leave abusive situations. Ultimately, she aspires to identify effective ways to assist victims of intimate partner violence so that they have access to formal and informal resources. Additionally, she has been involved in research projects that focus on crime control effects of criminal sanctions on recidivism of intimate partner violence and victim-offender relationships in intimate partner homicide.

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a significant and widespread social problem internationally, devastating adults, children, families and societies across the globe. It includes any form of harm that is both a consequence and cause of gender power inequities. It can be physical, psychological, sexual, economic, or sociocultural, and includes but is not limited to sexual abuse, rape, intimate partner abuse, incest, sexual harassment, stalking, femicide, trafficking, gendered hate crimes and dowry abuse. Gender-based violence intersects with race-based, class-based or religiously oppressive forms of abuse, and cross-cuts many other social problems (e.g., poverty, substance abuse, mental and physical health, crime).
