Daughters of Durga
In the early 2010s a spate of domestic violence-related murders in the Victorian Indian community compelled psychiatrist Manjula Datta O’Connor to investigate the causes of patriarchal abuse in South Asian families. As a practitioner with many decades experience in the field, Datta O’Connor questioned whether a better understanding of history and culture could help these communities prevent family violence. But the most powerful lessons came from those she met through her practice—survivors of transnational abuse and dowry exploitation.
