Formatted abstract
From actresses to migrant workers, stories of women from all socioeconomic groups, who courageously break their silence to speak up about domestic violence, show that despite the enactment in 2004 of Republic Act (RA) 9262 (the Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act), domestic violence remains rampant in the Philippines. With the inability of the law to stem domestic violence and by extension, gender-based discrimination, women have looked outside the confines of the state and family for ways to escape abuse.

Drawing upon ethnographic fieldwork carried out between 2006 and 2007 in San Pablo City in the Southern Tagalog province of Laguna (the Philippines) Cheryll Alipio explores the migration decisions, economic strategies and familial sacrifices that women make when faced with domestic violence.
