About the special issue

The primary objective of this special issue is to examine and explore the cultural context of intimate partner violence.

Through quantitative and qualitative analyses, a greater understanding of intimate partner violence in the lives of African American, Asian American, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, Latina, and White survivors is gained.

While centralizing the voices of ethnically diverse survivors of intimate partner violence, this special issue also sheds light on the experience of intimate partner violence from the perspective of women who have traditionally been marginalized in the literature in other ways, specifically women who are impoverished, pregnant, homeless, HIV-positive, and sex workers.
