Study Says That Black Men Are Locked Up While Black Women Are Locked Out

The study shows those cast out from their homes most are disproportionately women from Black and Hispanic neighborhoods.

The reasons for this, according to the study, can be anything from lower wages, living paycheck to paycheck, and female-headed households.

Additionally, because women struggling to stay afloat don’t want to bring a landlord’s attention to themselves (or the significant other who may live with them, yet is not officially on the lease), they often underreport unsafe or unsanitary living conditions in older housing structures or don’t report problems that may even pose health code violations.
