Steadfast in her committment to helping women break out of the violence int heir lives, Ms. Boodram has become a force in the South Asian community in New York City’s South Asian community as well as other parts of the country.
“Women who go through violence do not feel they can share their story. By sharing mine, if I am able to atleast help one woman speak out and break out, then I will consider myself successful,” says Ms. Boodram.
As Women’s History Month comes to an end, Sakhi honors Ms. Boodram and the countless courageous women who struggle and suvive violence in their lives everyday.
