On April 1, 2001, Los Angeles Times reported on a shelter for battered women in Garden Grove that is "one of the few in Southern California that serves Muslims who, for complex religious and cultural reasons, think they cannot go anywhere else." The creator of the shelter said "it would be extreme humiliation" to a Muslim woman to go to any other shelter.
