Presented by: Ethno-cultural Family Violence Committee (EFVC) | PhD student: Wendy Aujla

Ethno-cultural Family Violence Committee

This presentation explores the problem of domestic violence by giving voice to a sample of South Asian immigrant women who are not only often ignored by their own community or society, but also fearful to reveal what challenges they experience in a new foreign residence when reaching out for help.

Domestic violence is often framed solely as a cultural and marginal problem within our society, despite its far-reaching impact on women from all racial backgrounds. Developing awareness for those affected necessitates reaching common ground on our thinking about abuse in ethno-cultural communities and how society can respond to this problem.
