Shame on you: Love, shame and women victim/survivors' experiences of intimate abuse

By Heather Merle Fraser


Published version made available with permission from Publisher (No To Violence \ud, shame and intimate abuse are often connected to one another through a web of complex emotions, beliefs, experiences, perceptions and stories. In this article, I consider how love and shame may converge for women victims/survivors of intimate abuse. While the work draws on data produced through 84 qualitative narrative feminist interviews, the central aim is to examine the effects of shame for women victims/survivors of intimate abuse through the stories that are told about it. Essentially, I argue that shame is worth exploring because it has some potent but also specific meanings for this population in intimate love relationships
