Making the Links is the first ever research examining how many women experience violence by a partner/boyfriend/husband in Ireland. It also examined the nature of the violence they were subjected to (physical, mental, sexual), who they told (e.g. friends, doctors, Gardai, social workers) and the response they received from Irish agencies such as the Gardai and social workers.
Making the Links is a research study commissioned and published by Women's Aid.
Written by Patricia Kelleher and Monica O'Connor. Patricia Ph.D. is a Research Consultant with Kelleher Associates and Monica O'Connor has 15 years experience working on the issue of violence against women.
