Would there be anyone out there who knows of anyone who has worked on
WOMEN'S REFUGES (or 'shelters' in US-speak)? I have a student interested
in doing a third year dissertation on the subject (based on
field-research in a refuge for battered women and children in the NE of
England), and I would like to be able to direct her to relevant
ethnography/literature and/or people involved in this sort of research
(particularly from an anthropological perspective). Many thanks for your
