According to the data by the United Nations, ever since the outbreak of COVID-19, the cases of domestic violence have skyrocketed. The cases have particularly intensified for women, children, and LGBTQ+ individuals and will likely increase as the months roll on.
As we wrestle with a global pandemic, it is important to note that domestic violence is also a global pandemic but a largely invisible one. Singapore, for one, has seen an increase in domestic violence cases since the opening of Phase 2. We can’t let this shadow pandemic go on any longer.
We need to learn how to make reporting domestic violence safer and more accessible. Join KeyNote Women Speakers Directory in a live virtual discussion titled, Domestic Violence: The Shadow Pandemic.
KeyNote’s panel consists of a legion of influential hosts such as Georgette Tan, President of United Women Singapore, Corinna Lim, Executive Director of AWARE, and Sharul Channa, Singapore’s first Stand-up Comedian amongst the speakers and moderated by Uma Rudd Chia, Creative Director of Weber Shanwick.
We will also hear from Natalie Song, co-founder of Singapore-based Song and Pashley, a non-profit for counselling support to victims of domestic abuse and bullying.
Let’s do our part and put an end to domestic violence.
