Domestic Violence, Varied Experiences…

How are domestic violence experiences among immigrant women different from women they find in their new homeland? Generally, regardless of their originality, social status, race, or ethnicity, domestic violence is likely to occur when there is an imbalance in a relationship. Domestic abuse might not be a one-off incidence, and it might happen again and again, probably getting worse over time, and for many women, it can continue even after the relationship has ended.
