Dear Student,

In addressing your question I have included information/articles that cover women suffering domestic violence from a range of cultural backgrounds. I have uploaded two related articles that discuss the impact of domestic violence on women and health care providers. (I can't upload more than this, but check the reference list for URLs, and hopefully you will be able to just click on the links). One of the articles (which I couldn't upload) is of a study done in 2003, which provides some fascinating statistics.

I have attached the word file, with the links to articles

As you can see, lots of research has been done, but always room for more.

I hope I have been of some help in getting you started on this very important investigation. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you need more assistance or clarification - happy to help.

All the best, and good luck with this project.
