Domestic abuse victims recount their experiences in Bristol University research

The Bristol Post reports on the new domestic violence and abuse section that has just launched on healthtalk.org with research from The University of Bristol in partnership with our colleagues at the University of Oxford.

Dr Emma Williamson, head of the Centre for Gender and Violence Research, is quoted as saying ‘Personal stories open a window into real-life experiences, providing insight to others. We are extremely grateful to the women who chose to speak about their experiences of domestic violence and abuse.

‘Although speaking about these experiences can be difficult, the women wanted to help others in similar situations and to let friends, family and professionals know how best to help if they think a woman is being abused.’
