Smart thinking! That’s the reaction many had when Sudha Shetty told the story of how she reached women in Seattle’s South Asian community who may have been victims of abuse. As the then-head of Chaya, a domestic violence prevention program, Shetty tried to speak at numerous public events in order to raise awareness of the issue. But after being rebuffed again and again, she figured out how to bypass the podium gatekeepers. She printed Chaya business cards listing resources for victims and placed them in the women’s bathrooms, thereby avoiding the scornful gaze of the male event organizers. Hear more about this and other ways Shetty is now helping women as the director of the Hague Domestic Violence Project and the assistant dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley.
