Why Isolation Is Deadly For South AsiansYour Coach

“I left home at age 19 with $50 in my back pack and ended up staying at a shelter with very little language skills, no money and no direction. Once a South Asian Woman steps out of her family’s home, she become an outcast. Never to be loved again, supported emotionally or financially and used as an example of a person without character. Nobody ever tries to find out, why did she leave in the first place? She cannot change others, but she can start change with herself. NEVER AGAIN. Her mother, her sister, her daughter or she would be treated badly, killed, abused, or controlled. Life is a beautiful gift and she does have a choice to make it abuse free, safe and filled with love. It is a very lonely journey. Getting support from men can place a woman in compromising situations. Thank you SAWNTV for creating the space for women like me to get support and guidance with cultural context.”-Anonymous submission

“I want to say thanks from my heart to you.
It’s you who gave me inspiration to fight for my safety and my family and I did that.
I am so Proud of you that Being a woman you are so bold and You are helping other women also.
I am out of street now, If you wouldn’t have encouraged me,I wouldn’t have done that.

I just really wish you success in all the endeavours.”

One dead victim’s story: “I repeatedly told police my family were trying to kill me.  But I was not taken seriously, even after an instance of escaping my father.  After my escape, the interviewing officer described me as being melodramatic and manipulative instead of being culturally aware and understanding that I was crying out for help.”

“Violence and abuse in South Asian families are rooted in complex family dynamics and broader systemic barriers,” she said. “These dynamics differ from the dominant mainstream culture and, therefore, demand different kinds of interventions and approaches. Newcomer victims of partner abuse remain mute because they lack knowledge of our health, social service and judicial systems. Religion and culture are often used to justify and excuse violence and keep women oppressed within South Asian communities. In South Asian families, victims want the violence to stop, but not if it means their family will be torn apart. There are a number of institutional and systemic challenges that contribute to the continuance of violence in South Asian homes.” Social Services Network executive director, Dr. Naila Butt
