Abstract

“Home” means a range of things from house, street address, land, country, and religion, to feelings of security and belonging. Home is inclusive of those things. Home is both an ideal (concept, metaphor) as well as a lived reality. And as feminists have shown and argued in their critique of the “separate spheres” doctrine, home can also be a place of exclusion, oppression, and violence.
