Is Anyone Listening? Accountability and Women Survivors of Domestic Violence

By Gill Hague; Rosemary Aris et al. | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

Many people have helped to make this book possible. First of all, we wish to thank all the many survivors of domestic violence who have talked and worked with us, and who have given us their time, energy, honesty and expertise, over our years of engaging in domestic violence work. Most particularly, our sincere gratitude goes to the women who had experienced domestic abuse whom we interviewed during the study on which this book is based. They assisted us, throughout, with the research and with ideas for this publication. Without them it could not have been written.

Very many thanks to Nicola Harwin, the Director of the Women's Aid Federation of England who was the consultant to the study and who has contributed a short section to the book. The study could not have been conducted without the dedicated work of our colleague, Wendy Dear, who participated in much of the research which forms the backdrop to everything we have written here. Our thanks to her and also to Hilary Abrahams who assisted with the research; to Ellen Malos who participated in the study initially; to Cassie Hague for administrative and research assistance; and, particularly, to Valerie Douglas who conducted secretarial work on the manuscript beyond the call of duty.

We are also most grateful to the many policy-makers, managers and workers in inter-agency forums, refuge organisations and statutory and voluntary sector agencies who agreed to participate in the study as interviewees and who assisted us to conduct the research in their areas. We are particularly grateful both to domestic violence survivors and to professionals who specifically assisted us in Coventry, the London Borough of Croydon and the North Somerset area (our main study areas), and in Sheffield and the Rhondda (our policy profile areas). In all of these areas, we were welcomed and assisted generously, particularly by the specialist domestic violence co-ordinators and the equality units and refuge organisations involved. In this context, we would particularly like to thank for their generous time and valuable ideas: Liz Blyth, then of the Coventry Domestic Violence Partnership; Angie Parks and the Coventry Haven project; Sobia Shaw of Panahghar; Maureen Storey of Sheffield Domestic Violence
