Women's use of intimate partner violence - participants needed for research

Women's use of violence in intimate relationships is a very controversial issue. The voices of women have often been missing in this debate.

Bridget Mottram, Principle Researcher from University of Western Sydney would like to interview women (18+) who have engaged in any kind of intimate partner violence.

The aim of Bridget’s project is to document women’s lived experiences and gain a deeper understanding of the circumstances in which women use violence in their relationships.

The interview will take between one and three hours in a place of your choosing or via Skype if you prefer. You will be asked about your life with a particular focus on your relationships and experiences of intimate partner violence.

Interviews will be completely confidential and you can withdraw your consent at any time.

The interview is designed to be safe and comfortable, and you are free to talk about what you want. You are not required to talk about anything you don’t want to.

Please email Bridget if you would like more information about the study or if you would like to participate.

So women do not commit or perpetrate violence, they use it. Double standard. Nowhere in the last 25 years of treating men as the sole abusers, has anyone asked for their lived experiences to justify their behavior and make the agressor the victim . The pussy pass double srandard in action here.
