That Desi Spark (formerly The Woke Desi)

Nov 9, 2021

Ramya Chunduri joins this episode of TWD to explain how domestic violence, an issue an underreported 2 in 5 South Asian women face, has transformed through the pandemic. The UN called it a "shadow pandemic," as rates of DV increased, social media became both a place of information and of danger, and abuse transformed with the use of the internet. Recognizing DV has never been so important - if you or anyone you know is experiencing abuse, please Google your state's local South Asian abuse resources, as they will have information catered to South Asian demographics, religions, and communities.
