Domestic violence is in the public eye as never before, but how often are abused women consulted or involved in the new services and policies? This book investigates, and reveals that the voices of survivors of domestic violence are often simply not heard; silenced, the women themselves become invisible. Is Anyone Listening? draws on the experiences of other service user movements to provide a strong conceptual framework for thinking about abused women's participation in policy and service development. It discusses empowerment issues and the women's movement against gender violence, exploring how far refuge organisations and other women's movement services have influenced statutory services and vice versa. It includes many practical ideas for involving women in the improvement of both policy and practice and gives examples of inspiring and innovatory projects. Based on a study carried out as part of the Economic and Social Research Council's Violence Research Programme, Is Anyone Listening? offers a unique analysis of the sensitive and complex issues involved in developing service user participation within the domestic violence field. The insights it provides will enable policy-makers, activists, students, practitioners and women who have experienced domestic violence to move forward together.user control 2, 16-17, 27, 31, 34, 40, 63, 95, 130. 140, 146 user involvement 2, 4, 16. ... mechanisms 132-4; womena#39;s refuge, support and outreach services 68-72; see also consultation; professionals and professionalism user movements 1-2. ... in Need project 141 Welsh Womena#39;s Aid 9 Westminster Domestic Violence Forum 103, 106-7, 116 Westminster, innovatory methods 116-17 Williams, F. 14.
