Homelessness among women is an increasing phenomena. The focus of this work is to examine common experiences and explain how homeless women interpret their circumstances. The numbers and characteristics of homeless women in recent history are examined thereby establishing the group as extremely heterogeneous in nature. Erving Goffman's classic work on stigma and the levels of individual identity, is applied to the homeless condition. A number or case studies are used to further develop and explain the meaning of the homeless state to the women involved.
