Domestic abuse, or also known as intimate partner violence (IPV), is a taboo in Malaysian society. It is an unpleasant topic of discussion among us. Why? Merely because we live in a high context society. We are collectivistic, value interpersonal relationships, and have members of society that form stable, and close relationships with each other. Due to this, women are often told to save face to avoid humiliation and embarrassment to the family, instead of choosing their mental well-being first when it comes to deciding whether to stay or to leave a toxic marriage. And if women choose the latter, they are labelled selfish for not putting the family’s interest first.
