In this presentation, Parveen Ali (Senior Lecturer, Division of Nursing and Midwifery Health Sciences School, University of Sheffield) discusses how intimate partner violence (IPV) affects millions of people across the world and is associated with a significant impact on physical and mental health of the victim. IPV often takes place within the context of marriage, where gender role expectations can play an important part in shaping attitudes towards it. While there is much research carried out to understand the phenomenon of IPV, little research is carried out to explore the experiences of women, especially from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, their experiences of abuse and seeking help. The aim of this unique study is to share experiences of such women.
