Our #AskHer webinar this month focused on the impact of gender-based violence on AAPI women. On May 19th, we had a poignant discussion on how our culture, institutions, and systems undermine the safety of women and gender expansive people from Asian and Pacific Island cultures. We discussed this historical issue and how it is playing out today alongside the recent increased violence against Asian American communities.
We were joined by Krittika Ghosh, Executive Director of the Asian/Pacific Islander Domestic Violence Resource Project (DVRP) and Tina Tchen, President and CEO of TIME’S UP Now and the TIME’S UP Foundation. They were interviewed by Jennifer Lockwood-Shabat, President and CEO of Washington Area Women’s Foundation.
