While forced marriage and 'honor-based' violence attract media attention, little is known about the issues and experiences of South Asian women and children who are affected by domestic violence. This book explores the key theoretical and empirical issues involved in gendered violence, ethnicity and South Asian communities. The editors draw together leading researchers and practitioners to provide a critical reflection of contemporary debates on research, policy and practice developments, and consider how these reflections can inform policy and practice. The contributors consider the primacy of religion and culture, and how South Asian women face multiple and intersecting forms of violence. Future directions for facilitating improved services for survivors of violence against women from different racial and ethnic backgrounds are also proposed. "Violence Against Women in South Asian Communities" will have widespread relevance for professional academics, researchers, students, policy makers, practitioners and anyone concerned with gendered violence within South Asian communities.
