This article seeks to develop an understanding of this violence further. By drawing on focus group research conducted with women in the Tigray region of Ethiopia, it explores the types of domestic violence experienced by these women, the impact of this violence, the reasons for it, and the multiple resistance strategies used by the women. The findings suggest a potentially important role for professional social work practice in the Ethiopian context.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||SAGE Publications||Journal:||Affilia||Volume:||28||Issue:||3||Start page:||256||End page:||272||Copyright (published version):||2013 the authors||Keywords:||Ethiopia; Gender-based violence; Domestic violence; Intimate partner violence; International social work; Qualitative research||DOI:||10.1177/0886109913495662||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
