Summary
Women, Violence and Tradition is a fascinating look into the life histories of women from ethnic minority communities in the West, focusing specifically on their experiences of underresearched cultural practices. It illuminates areas of tension and difficulty when women actively try to reform aspects of their tradition whilst remaining fiercely loyal to their cultural identity. It draws on the views of activists and community organisations that work with women to confront injustice
