Love, Honour and Disobey

Domestic violence in black and ethnic minority communities

‘Domestic violence claims the lives of two women a week’

In January 2006, our film Love, Honour and Disobey was published by Faction Films. Love, Honour and Disobey is essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand domestic violence within black and minority ethnic communities. It will be useful for training teachers, social workers, police, lawyers, health workers and any other professionals, refuges and women’s groups.

Love, Honour and Disobey tells the story of domestic violence in Britain’s black and ethnic minority communities through the eyes of Southall Black Sisters.

The film interweaves powerful personal testimony from abused women with a forceful analysis of the issues that make domestic violence an even more terrible experience for minority women.

Getting to the heart of the multicultural debate it looks at all forms of domestic violence ranging from honour killings to forced marriages. And it examines the role of immigration controls, culturally sensitive policing, religious fundamentalism and the attitudes of minority communities themselves in continuing to endanger the lives and well being of many women.
