Isi artikelDomestic violence (DV) is a pervasive problem affecting cultural, ethnic and economic groups worldwide (Greenfield et al., 1998; Wilt & Olson, 1996). Although DV affects women across differences by race, ethnicity, and class, scholarship with immigrant and refugee women has demonstrated that cultural factors related to language, religious beliefs, traditional help-seeking behavior, composite of social networks, and degrees of acculturation all influence howawoman who is abused by her partner will respond (Abraham, 2000; Bui, 2003; Yoshihama, 2001). In general, immigrants vary in their history of immigration, social status in the United States, and changes to cultural practices within their communities. In the context of abuse, structural factors— including financial resources, social support, availability of culturally competent help, and legal immigrant status and knowledge of their rights— may also shape women’s options when responding to abuse (Krishnan, Hilbert, VanLeeuwen, &Kolia, 1997; Long, 1986; Norton &Manson, 1992; Pinn & Chunko, 1997; Waldner-Haugrud, Gratch, & Magruder, 1997).
