Making Connections – Building Bridges: Research into Action – Ten Years of the Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit

January 1, 1997


This paper is an overview of the work and perspective of CWASU between 1987 and 1997. It has involved much summarising and selection, and inevitably means some areas have been neglected, others emphasised. Rather than offer a bland outline of the work that has been undertaken, Liz Kelly, Linda Regan and Sheila Burton have chosen to use this opportunity to reflect on and analyse the contribution of CWASU to feminist approaches violence against women and children.

Presented at: The Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit Tenth Anniversary Event, University of North London, 1997.
