ABSTRACT

Coverage of violence against women by mainstream media has contributed to the gender and cultural stereotyping of South Asians in Canada, resulting in racism and cultural discrimination (Jiwani, 2006; Thobani, 2007). In the mainstream reportage of violence involving members of the South Asian diaspora, particularly the Punjabi communities in and around Vancouver, British Columbia (BC), one can see the reification of South Asian cultures, emphasized in attempts to present members of that cultural community as backward and in need of outside intervention. In an attempt to push back against such assertions, this chapter argues that the South Asian-Canadian press in BC serves to delink South Asian cultural practice from associations with violence. This delinking manifests itself in the South Asian press’ coverage of spousal abuse. We argue that the association of violence with minority groups in mainstream news coverage is in itself an act of symbolic violence and moves the focus away from broader societal problems that contribute to domestic violence in Canada. While we will be using the designation ‘South Asian-Canadian’ throughout the chapter, it will at times be interspersed with ‘Punjabi-Canadian’, as the history of migration from the Punjab to BC has led to a large Punjabi-Canadian diaspora region (Tatla, 1999).
