Islam and Intimate Partner Violence: Stereotypes as Barriers for Muslim Women

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper explores how ethnicity and religion complicate the often simplistic answers given to the question of why women remain in abusive relationships. The paper argues that stereotypes about Islam shape the ability of Muslim victims of domestic violence to gain access to the legal system and other services. Stereotypes impact the quality of services given to battered Muslim women, and they also make Muslim women feel compelled to protect the image of Islam. Residents and employees from battered women's shelters were interviewed during the course of this research, and the results of this informal study are discussed within the context of research on Islam and myths about whether the religion condones violence against women.
