Hmong women working in domestic violence programs organized a series of meetings to understand the trends and issues in international marriages and to explore possible actions to address abusive international marriages. They saw its connections to sexual and domestic violence and the impact on their communities; and wanted to find out what is happening. Hmong advocates, Hmong women activists, victims/survivors of the practice of abusive international marriages, community leaders and allies came together to learn and strategize. Their documentation of the problem and its impact, analysis, survivors’ stories, and strategies are captured in Abusive International Marriages: Hmong Advocates Organizing in Wisconsin.
