Aldarondo, E., Kaufman-Kantor, G. K., & Jasinski, J. L. (in press). Risk Marker Analysis for Wife Assault in Latino Families. Violence Against Women: An International and Interdisciplinary Journal.

This study evaluated the utility of commonly recognized risk markers of wife assault to predict violence against women in various ethnic groups of Latino families. A multivariate analysis of the 1992 National Alcohol and Family Violence Survey was done to compare the occurrence of violence in Mexican, Mexican-American and Puerto Rican groups. A group of Anglo-American families was used for comparison. Parallel analyses were conducted on menís self-reports of violent behavior and womenís reports of victimization. Results for both male and female respondents showed that the level of hostile conflict in the relationship was the strongest predictor of wife assault across ethnic groups. Although Latino groups share various risk markers for wife assault, there is considerable Between-group variability, which is not accounted for by generic risk markers. These results highlight the need for research to focus on the individual, relationship, social and cultural determinants of wife assault within specific ethnic groups.

Anderson, M.J. (1993). A License to Abuse: The Impact of Conditional Status on Female Immigrants. Yale Law Journal, 102(6), (pp. 1401-1430).

Female aliens with conditional residency status have little legal recourse when married to abusive partners. The Immigration Marriage Fraud Amendments of 1986 (IMFA) give husbands the authority to petition for conditional status for their wives. This factor combined with aliens' fear of bureaucratic involvement makes alien women reluctant to seek help. The law needs to be changed so that women can self-petition for conditional status and face reasonable evidentiary requirements for the change to permanent status. Fear of the bureaucracy also needs to be decreased.
