Understanding the online safety and privacy challenges faced by South Asian women
The evolution and history of women in Asia coincide with the evolution and history of Asian continent itself. They also correspond with the cultures that developed within the region. Due to the patriarchal nature of traditional Armenian culture and society,  women in Armenia are often expected to be virtuous and submissive, to safeguard their virginity until marriage, and assume primarily domestic tasks. Women in Cambodia, sometimes referred to as Khmer women , are supposed to be modest, soft-spoken, "light" walkers, well-mannered,  industrious,  belong to the household, act as the family's caregivers and caretakers  and financial comptrollers,  perform as the "preserver of the home", maintain their virginity until marriage, become faithful wives,  and act as advisors and servants to their husbands.
Stereotypes of South Asians are broadly believed impressions about individuals of South Asian origin that are often inconsistent with reality. While the impressions are wrongly presumed to be universally true for all people of South Asian origin, these stereotypes adversely affect the South Asians as well as the acculturation process. With 20th century immigration of South Asians around the world, especially to the United Kingdom , Canada and the United States , ethnic stereotyping of South Asians has become common place.
