I lived in fear because I knew nothing : barriers to the justice system faced by CALD women experiencing family violence /

by Cavallaro, Lisa | InTouch Inc. Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence Vic.).

Publisher: Melbourne InTouch Inc. Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Cover title. Includes bibliographical references Project researcher: Lisa CavallaroSummary: From literature reviews it was found that the incidence of family violence amongst refugee and migrant families is not higher. Being newly settled does expose families to stresses that increase the risk of intimate partner violence. The consequences for women from immigrant and refugee backgrounds can be even more damaging for them and their children because they are likely to face greater obstacles in their struggle to break the cycle of violence. This project therefore began with the understanding that the barriers for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) women are distinct and in addition to those faced by women from the broader community. This research was driven by a concern for the compromised safety and wellbeing of these women and their children due to the various barriers they face in accessing the legal / justice system.Availability: (1)

Race, faith and gender : converging discriminations against Muslim women in Victoria : the ongoing impact of September 11, 2001 /

by Islamic Women's Welfare Council of Victoria.

Publisher: Northcote, Vic. Islamic Women's Welfare Council of Victoria 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The experiences of Muslim women in Victoria after September 11 documented in this research demonstrate that instances of racism are not simply isolated, one-off incidents. Racism against Muslim women has a pervasive and persistent cyclical pattern, characterised by quiet periods of everyday racisms and incivility, which are interrupted by sharp rises in racism after international incidents of Muslim-related terrorism. This research demonstrated that non-Muslim Victorians' perceptions of Muslims in general, and Muslim women in particular, are complex but nonetheless inextricably tied to Muslim women?s experiences of racism. What non-Muslim Victorians think of Muslim women affects these women?s lives and their potential for integration. It is important to note that, at least for Muslim women who participated in this study, it was the fear of racism and not their mistreatment by their society or religion that restricted their freedom and independence. Our research confirmed that non-Muslim Victorians and Muslim women feel a growing divide in relations between Muslims and non-Muslims. Muslim women feel it through a growing sense of marginalisation and non-Muslim Victorians feel it in the unfair treatment they perceive Muslims to receive. For Victorians on both sides of the divide, there is a strong desire for contact and exchange of ideas, information and common experiences.Availability: (1)
