#AskHer Series: The Impact of Gender-Based Violence on AAPI Women

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 ofWashington Area Women’s Foundation.

#AskHer / #AskThem is an interview series featuring women and gender non-conforming leaders, and The Women’s Foundation’s partners, community members and supporters who work tirelessly for women and girls. We curate in-depth conversations around complex issues affecting our constituents. Issues ranging from racism, racial justice, women, girls, intersectionality and more will be covered.
