La description

Based on interviews with service providers from the immigration, criminal justice and family justice systems in four different communities in British Columbia, Hiding in Plain Sight examines the barriers encountered by abused immigrant women across Canada as they seek services and support, and identifies the key challenges for abused immigrant women accessing services as well as the struggles service organizations experience in meeting their needs.
