Abstract:

Session presented on: Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Purpose: A cultural perspective is necessary to understand the experiences of women of Mexican origin who live with abuse.  Little is known about women of Mexican descent (e.g. Mexican-American or Mexican immigrant women) who live with abuse from a cultural perspective.

Methods: In this qualitative study, data collection included conducting extensive interviews in order to explore the experiences and cultural context of women of Mexican origin. The study included fieldwork at two sites (a shelter and outreach community agency) that provided services to women who were battered and/or sexually assaulted.  Twenty-six women were interviewed.

Results: Themes relevant to gendered roles and traditional female social roles emerged.

Conclusion: Women do not idly accept the violence perpetrated against them, rather, the severe consequences of not accepting the abuse force them to retreat to other coping mechanisms to protect their children and themselves.
