#44 Online/offline Ghar ko kahani

In this episode, we talk about violence against women offline and online. We hope to explore how gender-based violence manifested itself in new and different forms during the COVID pandemic and also touch on the lack of policy and judicial responsiveness when it comes to online harassment and bullying of women and individuals from marginalised communities.
