Abstract

Headlines such as "Man Jailed for Train Station Attack on Indian Student," "Fatal
Stabbing Hits Indian Student Hopes," and "Indian Student Bashings on the Rise in
Sydney" highlight violent crimes against male international students by strangers in public spaces. The media reports run contrary to the perceptions of our interviewees who suggest that violence against female international students by known perpetrators in private spaces is common. We argue that intersecting inequalities relating to gender, race, and class are often compounded by the status of "international student." Discussions focus on various forms of gender-based violence and gender violence education and support programs in Australia and the United States.
