Their Story Matters with Sara Troy and her guest Kanchan Bhaskar, on air from March `14th
According to The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), on average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States.
Within the South Asian community, the number may be even higher, but it is underreported.
Leaving: How I Set Myself Free From an Abusive Marriage (She Writes Press; April 11, 2023; paperback; 978-1647424756) is a powerful and inspiring memoir by Kanchan Bhaskar.
“A gripping story of one woman’s self-emancipation from marital despotism.”
