Abstract

This article describes the lived experiences of women in an inter-ethnic marriages and the violence they face in their everyday lives. Purposive sample of 30 low-income inter-ethnically married women in Kashmir were considered for the study. The experiences of abuse are drawn from in-depth, face-to-face interviews conducted in Srinagar, Kashmir. The qualitative analysis describes three major categories of their lived experiences: (a) types of abuse, (b) family involvement in abuse, (c) treatment of children. Domestic violence in Indian culture includes violence from the husband as well as the in-laws. Women are expected to endure violence for fear of bringing shame to their families. Social and financial support for abused woman is lacking as they are located far away from their native families and communities.
