"And guess who's more likely to be working and responsible for child care in this pandemic Mom, women are leaving the workforce because of this, so without support, more childcare providers, more clothes and child care workers who are mostly women are going to continue to lose their jobs. Senator Murray says. It's also critical to get students back in the classroom. President Joe Biden is pushing for K through eight schools to fully reopen in his 1st 100 days. But many parents are in no hurry to send their Children back to school with divides, splitting along racial lines. According to the Centers for Disease Control report in December. Racial and ethnic minority parents are more concerned about some aspect of school reopening than white parents, including that mitigation measures wouldn't be followed and the possibility their Children could bring the virus home with them. Guidance plan would provide $130 billion to help schools to safely reopen. Supporters of the American rescue plan also say Biden's plan would help uplift woman of color. Quit falling into poverty due to covert 19 related job loss. Communities of color have been especially hard hit by the pandemic. Black, Hispanic and Native American people are dying from covert 19.

We all know that the spending because disproportionately impacted communities of color indigenous communities and women, especially women of color, this crisis has plunged more than eight million more people into poverty says last year. About one in seven households nationwide, including more than one in five and Latino households, and many Asian American Pacific Islander and Native American households struggling just to secure the food that they need. One way the plan would address this inequity, says Senator Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut is by increasing the child tax credit. Millions of Children living in families cannot afford to put food on the table. Pay rent. We can alleviate child poverty by expanding and improving the child tax credit. The rescue plan increases the value of this credit makes it off fully refundable. That means that one search of Children that are left behind are now going to be in included. By putting money in people's pockets. It cuts child poverty nearly in half, and it is especially true for black Children, Hispanic Children, Native American Children, Asian American Children. The American rescue plan would also scale up vaccination distribution, extend federal nutrition assistance programs. Cause federal collections on overpayments and debts for veterans and insure workers who quit due to unsafe working conditions can still receive unemployment insurance. In Berkeley.

"The brain drain of South Asia and ultimately resulted in highschool professionals coming to the US in the eighties and seventies, and then we have different waves of immigration now and at from the South Asian. Asked for we don't feel comfortable talking about the unity of that work item. So our class politics, how they have shown up in South Asia unfortunately continue to resonate today and it's something that I I've always tried to be cognizant of because because of probably my own life experiences. Won't didn't make so much sense because I do believe that it takes a really really special person to be drawn to this type of work, and of course, the empathy factor. Is Supremely important I don't think everyone could do this kind of work, and that's why I really wanted to ask you that question and also wanted to ask you about the work that you guys do regarding reproductive justice and in particular in our communities, there is an issue with sex selection, sex, selective abortion, and female infanticide, and so I just wanted to see you know I know that's Not. The only area of Focus that you have but I wanna see yeah which would thoughts are in regards to your organization? Yeah. That's it's at such a great question because especially we don't feel comfortable talking about reproductive justice and we especially during the this time of Kobe have seen a rise of sexual violence happening when shelter in place was in effect with the survivors that we work with. and. So one of the. This quite quite distinctly colleague in her brilliant was able to figure out a way to help get contraception. To some of the survivors that we work with because they were experiencing sexual violence regularly and they did not feel comfortable leaving their homes because shelter in place was in order ineffective they didn't want expose themselves with their children. To cove it said the only thing that we could do at that moment was really trying to figure out mechanisms to create safety and getting contraception was one of those mechanisms. But we see this consistently through the course of our work we see how gender will come up as as survivors are pregnant I'm serious and outcome the where where it might inflict additional forms apart we've absolutely had cases like that. After survivor has delivered baby and you know it the outcome is not as intended or expected from their partner, and there's forms of rage or anger that comes up and so for us it is inter weaved intertwined very much in the course of our work and one thing that I'm particularly proud of. How we view our work with survivors is that it's not sight load. So everything that we do whether it is talking about reproductive justice or tech talking about sexual violence or talking about once immigration status or we're talking about want access to public benefits or talking about mental health through the first of all the work that we do. It is all intertwined and it is holistic and it is with the Lens and understanding the survivors are living excuse me layered lives. And the conversations that we approach in the way that we have, which are conversation is very much in that Lens completely agree with you on not and you know my next question had to do with some of the unique challenges that you face and particular with your clients and you know I'm reading the portion on your website regarding safety planning and it offers lifesaving tips on what to do a your abuser is becoming. Violent or threatening, and so the question I wanted to ask is how daunting and challenging would it be as an immigrant woman in this country to leave and especially given the context of a patriarchal culture were a woman leaving of her own volition and and then what kind of paperwork that perhaps her husband keeps what does she need to green card or some documentation, and yet her safety is at risk so I was. Curious about that, and and just to give our listeners and understanding of some of the unique. With, your population that you help. An we we definitely encourage access or easily accessing ones, immigration papers documentation. Legal papers in in the course of one safety planning but it is not uncommon for the survivors that we work with to have never taken the subway. It is definitely not uncommon for us to. When Kobe was happening, calling Uber have the Uber Hick survivor up from their their home and bring them to our offices. It's absolutely not uncommon for many of the survivors that we work with to to have never. Walked into a public benefits office or HR A office and Many of the survivors that we work with also experienced forms of extreme isolation and don't are not as comfortable in speaking in English, and so whereas like they're comfortable speaking of a South Asian language and so it's it's incumbent upon us in. This is why our work is. So critically important because languages such a immediate touch point of trust it's incumbent upon. US to be envel- to work with survivors to showcase how the American ecosystem works healthy how the subway works out how one can possibly survive near city and what are what are the mechanisms for for independence in New York City but that is that is one of the many points of barriers for survivors that we work with because. So many are also. Very new to the United, states are experiencing a new level of foreign S. That's one aspect of it is that it would be extremely stressful time and we know that domestic violence often does occur in circumstances certainly pinned America's would qualify as as one of those situations and and so I, wanted to review some of the most sobering facts that found on your website about the the work that you do seventy five percent of your clients live below the poverty line four, thousand, five, hundred yearly calls have been logged on. Your help helpline and that's yearly ten thousand plus clients have been helped since nineteen, eighty nine. Those are really staggering statistics and and I also WanNa just offered our listeners I think it would make sense to most that New York City is a central point of entry for many South Asians in the diaspora. But you know if you could speak to that as well because historically I would offer that you pobably are one of the oldest organizations. In. The country for a community where the second oldest of our kind. which is the first mask. So our sister organization in New Jersey Mondavi was. A. Few years before us.

"Professor, Anita hill and pen America. CEO Suzanne also pen, America is giving Nita hill their annual pen courage award at their gala tonight, seven thirty the museum of natural history, and that live streaming, you know, when we do live streaming, it's audio video so people that what you dress, just so people know Penn dot org, and we've got John Oliver Alec Baldwin. Bob, Woodward, lupita and young go. So it's going to be a very exciting night are encouraged people to tudent and Anita before the break, you were starting to talk about title nine in the context of twenty nineteen well as a matter of fact, I keep talking about the structural impediments to people being able to come forward, not only speak about abuse, but also just to really take advantage of opera. -tunities that are there for the, the generates imperative is another effort to remove some of the barriers to women in education and among us, Barry, sexual harassment, but also all sorts of form of sexism. I would say, though, that, that work that I'm doing at the Hollywood commission is, in fact, another one of those projects, where we have gathered together, twenty five leaders in the Hollywood entertainment industry together to put for policies that will in fact, make sure that we can eliminate bias an offer, including sexual harassment. What we're doing right now specifically is we are trying to develop a system for what we're calling freelance workers, but workers who are not covered by. Any reporting system. Redeveloping, our reporting system and a resolution system. Wherein bad developing ways to investigate complaints, when they comment whether their bias complaints of any form and that includes race and gender and all other kinds of poor cabinet behavior. We're developing code of conduct, and we're developing training around that code of conduct. So one impediment again, is that there are still people out there who have no place to report abuse, when it happens, and we're trying to remedy that with Hollywood commissions worth. So that's one of the best practices trying to put into place that any employer no matter how small has that kind of system in place some system in place. And, and, and at think if you just think about it is shocking today that you have people who are experiencing. It's a Jere abuse in the workplace and yet, have literally no where to her, and we've seen that play out in different situations. And even if you go back to Senate to the cabinet hearings where it was just not clear at all. Whether Dr fort had any place that she could go to complain about the sexual misconduct that she was allergic. So we want to remedy that at least in the entertainment industry, and I'm hoping that, that will be a model for other industries as well. Jennifer in new poultry on WNYC with Anita hill, and shoes in so hi. Jennifer. I am. Thank you. Dr hell my question. Segues from the comment you just made about Christine Blasi Ford. I'm curious to hear what you feel that the differences in the process during those hearings versus what you experience like, did you see any change? Was there any cause for hope? Or did you feel? It was just sort of disaster. Well, I can tell you just repeat what I said, there was no place, no no process in place for Dr forwards complaint to be heard that was a nineteen ninety one and as far as we know it remains true today. The Senate doesn't not have a process in place for hearing complaints about presidential nominees that needs to change. I would also say, though, that there is room for hope, when we saw the hearing and last year in twenty eight teen. At least we saw much more diversity on the Senate Judiciary committee. There were actually women on the Senate Judiciary committee last year. That was not the case in nineteen ninety one there were people of color who brought in different perspectives in different understandings about the. Sexual assault that, that Christie Bazi fort allegedly experienced, and I think that makes a huge difference and how not only she experienced the hearing. But also how the public experience, which is very important. Adam on Staten Island. WNYC. Hi, adam. Hello. Go ahead. Ademir their Dr hill is talking about, and how that would be rolled out and impact the the entire events that took place. Right. Because there's some line between allegations equal automatic conviction and I'm interested to know in today's information now. So as soon as made it's on a thousand media platforms some respectable like your own WNYC, and some questionable. And then it's re reposted on every Facebook, every Instagram, Twitter excetera. So when you come to do process, it's obviously painted in that aspect. So what kind of procedures MRs Dr hill, referring to that's what I'm interested in? Right. Because you wanna ovoid that that easy. I guess, oh guilty. And you know, pitchfork. And kinda Frankenstein affect that. Mary Shelley wrote about all those years ago. So I'll leave it at that. And thanks very much for your time. Thank you for your questions. So there are a lot of men who are concerned about to process in these cases to, oh, absolutely. There are people who are concerned about due process, and, and I am, as well, but you have to keep in mind that there's a difference between a criminal conviction and you use the word conviction in your in your question. There's a difference between a conviction in a criminal case where due process applies rigor rigorously, and she would apply rigorously and a case where two divisional is being nominated for the privilege of serving in an office with this country, and particularly supreme court supreme court appointment is a privilege and the individual has the burden of proving that they are the right fit for that privilege. So. I would just say, let's not confuse criminal procedure with the nomination procedure for position on the highest court in the country, for example, and just add something based on your comments about the Hollywood commitments issue for us in the publishing industry with writers who in informal settings may not be an employment relationship experience some kind of harassment, it can be a delivery conference, and then who investigates that the allegation can be made and there's nowhere for it to go. So my hope is that the procedures that you're developing are ones that can be looked at by other industries. And ultimately, I think for it's helpful for both the accuser and the accused because otherwise the allegations just said out there, there's no way of verifying them. It's inconclusive. It's he said she said, if there's a process and there can be an investigation. And if it turns out, the person, you know, it's unfounded and unsubstantiated, you know that can be a resolution as well. So I think ultimately your point that what is missing. Are these processes? One, you know that serves not just the accuser, but also the accused -absolutely that's it also serves the public because the public has a chance to know that there is a resolution of it's fair resolution so that they are not left with, with misinformation or disinformation about what's going on. And in Westchester, you're on WNYC I n hi- as I as I listened to Nita he'll come on the air, I, I remembered back in nineteen Ninety-one writing in my journal, and I told out as he was speaking, my up Tober twelfth nineteen Ninety-one entry, which is three pages. It starts with. Thank you. Need a hill, and ends with thank you need a hill, and much of it is I guess I must've been stuck at that moment on the accusation that you were faced with you never did anything about this before. And I went on and on how of course, and I had never done anything about anything that I had faced before. But really at the time I just wanna say and through the years, every time you name comes up, I feel extremely grateful to you, it was so hard, what you did. And you know it's. Just mazing to me that you were able to do it in the first place, and that you have persevered. So thank you. Need a hell blank you? And thank you for keeping the journal. You know, one of the things though that I think we have to make clear is that we're in a new day. Now, we can no longer deny the existence of these problems. And what people want to what survivors wanted, in particular, is they want to be heard. And I think that there is a, a public that wants to hear these claims to, they people want resolution. We not only have more survivors coming forward. We have their allies who are coming forward, and they're saying that it's time for us to address this problem, you know, I estimate given the numbers that we have about harassment and assault that one in every three households in this country is dealing with at some form or fashion, whether it's an economic consequence. Or an emotional or health consequence of this kind of behavior that we're allowing to continue in our society, and that makes it to me an issue of great public concern that we need all of our institutions are workplace private institutes, as well as our government to respond gave the commencement address on Saturday. Lesley university in Cambridge, and you're told the graduates that you would seem the world come so far from your parents lived experience of having grown up in segregation. And the we when you were graduating from college in the nineteen seventies, you thought the world would quote sprint toward equality for all so to what degree. Have you become less of an optimist about the pace or possibility of race and gender equality? Well, for everything that makes me, less obstinate optimistic something gives me more hope so at Lesley university. For example. We have students who were who have been taking on this issue and really looking at the challenges around inequalities and pushing forward and engaging, their communities. We have hope from the park, lit students who are young people who are out there really marching and standing up for their rights, and, and it's a basic right to be safe in the spaces where we exist. So I of course get discouraged but I'm also optimistic because there are people who will come after me either leave for generations who will be taking up these issues Shuzeng since your organization pen, America has the slogan the freedom to write, how's the freedom to ride doing in the Trump era. You know, he's got these thirteen million tendencies, and we know we close the press the enemy of the people and we saw just last week. Celebrate Hungary's authoritarian leader. Viktor Orban's clamped down hard on free speech. But in this country, very vocal criticism of Trump is everywhere. So how you doing, but your pin, America's lights, we're very concerned. I mean, yes, there is vocal criticism and we're lucky because our media is not censored in this country. And, you know, so far, the president while he has threatened and exacted retaliation against certain media outlets. There are many journalists who are going about their work fearlessly and providing hard hitting coverage, and so that's very encouraging, but the global picture, and it's, it's reinforced and fuelled by him is really disturbing global organization organization, and we see the rise of authoritarianism, the retreat of democracy, the kind of rewriting of the norm so that jailing journalists around the Royal criticizing, and calling out journalists insulting journalists working as President Trump has done to try to. Ensure that his support base, simply doesn't believe what they read from the mainstream media from credible news outlets. That's a lot of his strategies to ensure that people doubt and question and distrust, and dismiss credible, hard hitting reports about what he's done. And he believes that will inoculate him from being held accountable. So we have our work cut out for us in terms of defending the freedom to right around the world. Then tonight will also be honoring three intrepid Saudi women who've been at the forefront of the women's rights there who are in prison right now. Two of them who've been tortured for advocating for a lifting of the ban on driving and Saudi and relief from the guardianship system. So there people like that all over the world who are fighting and facing the harshest punishments for exercising their freedom to right. Neither just to conclude on the news as I understand it show Biden and his phone call to you expressed his regret for.

"China. But that technology has multiple uses. It could be used for NFL you entering a store. It could be used by the police for surveillance and tracking again, they're sort of this these caveats right there hard choices are hard trade-offs. And I think every government and a lot of business leaders are going to have to make some tough choices going forward is the Chinese government and not Chinese technology firms. Are they actively trying to exploit their model to other countries? Or is this just happened? Because of the growth of the technology sector and China's money any influence in the world. I think it's both I think Chinese companies certainly target the Chinese market. I is a huge market, obviously, more than a billion people huge Konomi much like the US. It's a local market, first and foremost, but particularly for China's government expert technology overseas does have that sort of secondary interest. Right. It's not just economic it. It's also the closer, you can align values, the more likely those countries are to work with other Chinese businesses and to support Chinese foreign policy. And so we see this from the belt and road initiative. We see this with the Asian infrastructure investment, Bank and other sort of multilateral programs in the tuition's where you sort of get the best of all worlds, and that something that the United States is enjoyed almost with the monopoly for decades in the post World War Two world. China's now really contested. China has its idea of cyber sovereignty is really a challenge to the global conception of internet freedom that is enshrined in U N resolutions of that really is derived from the basic protections for freedom of expression in instruments like the Universal Declaration of human rights and kind of extend some to the online arena. China doesn't subscribe to that. They're putting forward alternative issue where each country can impose its own rules and all the Gatien, and you know, for them that offers an extension of state control and suggesting that kind of the direction that the world should go and Susan the CEO of pin America, a leading human rights and free to expression organization. So I think it's an invitation to other government to think more probably about how they might. Like censor. The power of the internet is the ability for ideas to cost borders for people to find one another and establish common ground, you know, build connections and networks the cost common entrance regardless of graphic boundaries. And so if we lose I think lose a lot of what is most compelling about the internet. So we use an increasingly stock choice to be Meg between two very different nations of the internet and internet governance in which direction is the international wind blowing saw security researcher Justin Sherman. So my colleagues at new America, which is a think tank in Washington DC in the states map two hundred ninety three countries from around the world and took a bunch of data points on everything from internet freedom to social media, penetration. And what we wanted to do was basically understand the landscape of how countries approached internet governance on a spectrum from global and open approach that night into microscopes have. Vacated all the way on the other side of the spectrum to very sovereign controlled approach advocated by authoritarian countries, and what we found is that there's clustering on each of these polls as we might have expected, but there were a series of fifty countries in the middle. What we call the digital deciders that really have not yet taken clear stances on internet governance. And that's because that's really one of two reasons one they don't have enough of a developed internet in the country to actually have established policy or two is that they haven't clearly aligned with either model some of the things they're doing might be democratic in nature other things they're doing might be thar Taryn in nature. And so part of the report was looking at these fifty countries and understanding how their decisions can impact the overall state of the internet, what sort of countries are we talking about the briefing from South Africa to Indonesia? I mean, these countries are scattered all across different continents and have different forms of of state governments. Some of these are Democratic-leaning some of these are our -tarian leaning, but because the internet preserve. And such an interesting conundrum for many countries. It's a huge economic enabler on one hand. Right. You can massively grow your Konami through an open internet yet at the same time. It does have this risk for some regimes of allowing checks on government and politically undesirable information. And so that was what was so fascinating is that the digital deciders aren't just one type of country. They span many forms of governance. But because the internet is such a particularly interesting conundrum for them. They're still sort of deciding what their governance approach it, look like we know that China, which has an authoritarian government is doing a lot of work helping to build infrastructure telecommunications infrastructure and internet infrastructure within developing countries at my Meticularly in in Africa should that concern. Yes. And no and one of the key things to understand here is breaking down that black box of China in understanding, what is an expert from a government entity versus an export from a commercial entity. And there is obviously more. Government control of industry in China than democratic countries. But the reason I say that is because some Chinese firms have actually tried to build out infrastructure in Africa. And in other continents around the world, primarily motivated seems by economic interests and sort of injecting themselves into that market while there are other cases where it seems that there may be more insidious concerns. But on that point there are issues with the Chinese government projecting its model of cyberspace through these exports of technologies in this infrastructure, Bill down other countries, but China has also been very active in international fora as well in the UN general assembly and other places advocating essentially that more countries become hands on on the internet. But what does that mean for the values like freedom of speech access association that we in the west once we're in essential part of the essence of cyberspace not to be too pessimistic about it. But given the current state of affairs. I actually don't really think it looks that. Good as I mentioned there. A combination of factors that are driving many of these digital deciders towards an authoritarian model of the internet. Some of that is deliberate. Some of these countries are directly emulating China and Russia and how they censor content and crackdown on free speech online. But for other countries, this is just a matter of cyber security, and so kind of the pivotal question going forward is Ken democratic countries come up with a model a model of the internet that has some appropriate balance of threat filtering with civil liberties and making sure we're not abusing power or entertaining thar -tarian practices online part of the the interesting thing with all of this is that myself and other other researchers who have been pointing out this issue with the democratic model, and how there is perhaps a way to tailor a more interesting balance, many critics of this sort of jumped to a slippery slope argument and saying that any hands on internet behavior. From government is a fast road down to Chinese style. Censorship. And I think we need to be very careful about that. Because really you can pick any issue where checks and balances and democratic rule of law have prevented sliding down slope. If you will. And so that's really what's key. Here is not only realizing that the democratic model is not convincing, but realizing that democracies can in fact, exert a little bit of control online democratic ways without automatically looking like a dictator one strategy, which just Shimin believes his promising is a British approach which concentrates on filtering Dutta rather than content. So what the United Kingdom has been doing over the past several years through their cyber signal cyber security center is essentially building systems to filter very low level cyber threats that are coming across their public network. So this is only for the government systems, but looking at things like E mail phishing attacks, and very low level cyber threats that really you can automate out to some extent rather than have people menu really dealing with them as you have to have deal with more sophisticate. A threats so by manually filtering, these public networks with the UK has done is managed to drastically cut down on the number of cyber threats emanating from UK government systems so wants to tick in I think it was the twenty eighteen update to the strategy. The UK noted that while the global volume of phishing attacks doubled in the last few years since they started doing this. The number has actually in half within the UK coming from public system. So they've actually in this sense able to filter out threats in a very effective way. While still not influencing the actual content that crowns across the networks, not tampering with access to new sites and things of that nature, and for individuals within the society. That's a good thing isn't it because that means they have to deal with of these threats and don't feel as though the route of being trampled at the same time. Absolutely. And that's part of the underlying principle that some UK leaders have spoken about here is that into days world, it's very hard to tell the individual that it's their responsibility or their responsibility entire. Airlie to deal with cyber security issues, and it's becoming increasingly an open question as to whether that's even a good thing to tell businesses. And so this is part of the government saying exactly what you just said that we need to respect you case, it isn't as rights online at the same time as we protect them from cyber arms. You're listening to future tents. I'm Antony Fennell.
