Domestic Violence/Intimate Partner Violence/Wife Battering
Violence between intimate partners is a universal phenomenon. It reflects patriarchal social orders that exist everywhere, but are stronger in developing countries. Feminists and women’s rights advocates have received global support for their attempts to eliminate violence against women. But anti-woman cultural practices flourish in many countries and immigrant women from those cultures are especially vulnerable. Even immigration law puts them at a disadvantage. Mail order brides are at high risk of violence and death.
