My name is Ava Kanyeredzi and I am a doctoral candidate at the Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit, London Metropolitan University under the supervision of Professor Liz Kelly. My PhD research examines how African and Caribbean heritage women seek help for violence and how violence affects their relationship to their bodies.

At this stage of my project, I am recruiting and carrying out life history interviews with black women who have used violence support services such as helplines or refuges. If this is something that interests you and you would like to share your experience, I would really appreciate your participation. Please contact Ava at avk0021[at] or visit for further details.

Your participation is entirely voluntary and confidential. This study has been approved by the London Metropolitan University Research Ethics Committee.
