Dr Katherine Allen is a Research Assistant in the Centre for Abuse Research (CARe) at the University of Suffolk. She has cross-disciplinary research experience in sociology, philosophy and literature, with strong research interests in sexual/gender-based violence and the evolution of feminist ending violence movements, feminist and social epistemology, and philosophy of literature, mind and the emotions. Following the completion of her PhD in Philosophy in 2013, Katherine worked in the social care and voluntary sectors, latterly working for a Suffolk-based sexual violence charity. Her experiences working in the sector spurred her to pursue a Masters in Woman and Child Abuse Studies and embark on a primary research project to understand the experiences of women working within the Rape Crisis movement.
