Dr. Heather Fraser is a senior lecturer in social work at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. Her teaching and research focus on violence and abuse, critical social work, advocacy, and social action.
Fraser has a tremendous talent for making complex ideas clear. Theory is beautifully woven in with the narratives. As a lesbian I felt very included, and as a poverty-class/working-class woman I felt my experience honoured. This is a great book." - Susan Strega, School of Social Work, University of Victoria
