Intentions : «This article discusses the theoretical and analytical intersectionality approach, focusing on its application to an analysis of empirical data obtained from qualitative research into domestic violence against Aboriginal women living in four remote communities in Quebec.» (p. 3)
Échantillon/Matériau : «Four remote Aboriginal communities were targeted. […] One group consisted of 22 Aboriginal residents (17 women and five men) directly or indirectly affected by domestic violence. The second group consisted of 18 practitioners (social workers, police officers, and a psychologist – 11 Aboriginal women and one non-Aboriginal, along with five Aboriginal men and one non-Aboriginal) who work with Aboriginal women and families affected by domestic violence.» (p. 5)

«The findings revealed the existence of different domination systems, as well as oppressive actions that interlock and interact at multiple and shifting levels, all of which shape and contribute to the reproduction of domestic violence among women living in remote Aboriginal communities. The intersectionality approach highlighted the important role played not only by race, gender, and social class, but also by the historical context and the degree of geographic isolation in the domestic violence experienced by Aboriginal women living in remote communities.» (p. 3) «For example, as our findings show, Aboriginal women living in remote communities are under social pressure to keep quiet about the violence they are experiencing in order to protect and preserve the family and the community’s reputation and to avoid social rejection. In this way, not only family cohesion but also strong social cohesion and the fact that everybody know.» (p. 19)
