Abstract

My doctoral research explored South Asian women’s experiences of abuse in families (Mirza 2015). I found that as well as partner abuse, abuse by the husband’s mother was also a huge issue. However, this is a dimension of South Asian women’s experiences that is overlooked, with much work on domestic abuse focusing on abuse between partners (Scottish Executive, 2003). Little is known about the nature of the mother and daughter-in-law relationship, and how it can add to women’s abuse and oppression in a family abuse context.
