Despite the proliferation of research on domestic violence and child abuse in the U.S. over the last two decades, experiences of women of color remain seriously understudied. This community-based study of women of Japanese descent elucidates multiple, interlocking ways in which socio-cultural factors influence their responses to partners' violence, while exposing tensions between the constraints and benefits of culture. The constraints affect physical and emotional well-being as women are pressured to endure violence. Defying cultural proscriptions has its cost, potentially depriving a woman of her cultural integrity and her support system. This article reevaluates current social policy and programs in light of this tension, calling for a new approach that acknowledges culture as a source of strength and support, while recognizing its contribution to women's vulnerability to violence.
