Exploring South Asian Women's Experiences of Domestic Violence and Help-Seeking Within the Sociocultural Context in Hong Kong



Exploring South Asian Women's Experiences of Domestic Violence and Help-Seeking Within the Sociocultural Context in Hong Kong



Violence Against Women 2019: 1077801218821443-1077801218821443



Data are reported from a survey of 49 South Asian women who self-identified as having experienced domestic violence from an intimate partner within the past 12 months. Logistic regression analysis reveals that perceived social support and having children emerged as the strongest predictors for seeking help. This study also demonstrates that women's approach to help-seeking is shaped and embedded by a combination of individual and structural factors. The findings of this study may be used to help enhance efforts to promote and provide resources and support for victims of domestic violence from an intimate partner.
