Maggie Evans PhD

Maggie Evans PhD is a Research Fellow in domestic violence and abuse at the University of Bristol and specialises in qualitative narrative studies 


'Through a research programme into domestic violence and abuse funded by the National Institute of Health Research we have privileged access to women survivors, many of whom have never come to the attention of services and are speaking out about coercive control for the first time. I will present narratives of the devastating impact on women’s lives, evidence that they have previously been unable to share as there are no ‘visible’ scars.' Dr Maggie Evans
