In April, I was lucky enough to meet Shamita Das Dasgupta, who spoke at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for the annual Balgopal Lecture on Human Rights and Asian Americans.
Dr. Dasgupta is the cofounder of Manavi (New Jersey), the first organization in the U.S. to focus on violence against South Asian immigrant women. She is currently teaching as an adjunct professor at NYU Law School. Dr. Dasgupta told me that, out of 160 South Asian women surveyed in the United States: While I wasn't able to attend her actual lecture (interviewing for graduate schools demands sacrifices), Dr. Dasgupta was gracious enough to speak with me the following morning. Returning to her work in the United States, Dr. Dasgupta spoke to me about some of the narratives she has heard from the women she has worked with regarding religion and domestic abuse: After hearing these narratives from many women, Dr. Dasgupta said that: Dr. Dasgupta's words really opened my eyes to the complicated, and often conflicting, challenges South Asian American women face, and her words about "betraying the community" is something I have seen come up in my research about "honor" killings as well. All in all, Dr. Dasgupta's passion for her community is something I found inspiring and her passion as an educator is something I am very grateful for.
