Photo of Asian woman holding a sign: End the Violence Against Asians
March 17, 2021 — This morning we once again awoke to news and scenes of horrific violence against eight persons--of whom seven were women and six were Asian—all shot to death in Georgia last night.

That this violence was also perpetrated mostly against women is yet another example of the massive wave of gender-based violence that has gripped almost every corner of the globe.
