Description of Resource

This issue includes an analysis of the participatory action research process, in addition to four articles that delve into the specific results for women in the Russian-speaking, Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Ethiopian groups. Each of the articles in this issue examines the specific cultural context in which domestic violence occurs, and the survivors' responses that are framed by that unique context. Although there are similarities between groups and crosscutting themes across ethnicities, each community revealed particular details that make the women's experience unique. -Description from source
