About UsMonsoon-United Asian Women of Iowa is committed to helping families of Asian descent in Iowa. The organizationís long-term mission is to eliminate domestic violence and sexual assault by promoting the social, economic, and political self-determination of all women.
Monsoon upholds every personís right to live in a home and society that is free of violence and sexual coercion. Its specific focus is to address the cultural and language needs of immigrant, refugee and U.S.-born Asian women and their children. In the short term, Monsoon will assist and offer information on services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Many Asian women living in Iowa face special challenges because of the cultural isolation, language barriers and the widely dispersed community in rural and urban areas.
