New data has revealed over the past year, the of anti-Asian hate incidents — which can include shunning, slurs and physical attacks — is greater than ly reported. And a disproportionate of attacks have been directed at women. The research released by reporting forum Stop AAPI Hate on Tuesday revealed nearly 3, incidents were reported over the course of roughly a year during the pandemic. Women made up a far higher share of the reports, at 68 percent, compared to men, who made up 29 percent of respondents.

The data, which includes incidents that occurred between March 19 of last year and Feb. Verbal harassment and shunning were the most common types of discrimination, making up The third most common category, physical assault, made up More than a third of incidents occurred at businesses, the primary site of discrimination, while a quarter took place in public streets. According to the data, Asian women report hate incidents 2. A further examination of the submitted reports showed that in many cases, the verbal harassment that women received reflected the very intersection of racism and sexism.
Jeung emphasized that women have always dealt with harassment from men and public safety issues more broadly.
I think that there's been a continued harassment of Asians and now we're continuing to see that reported. The wave of violence directed at Asian American seniors at the beginning of the year, particularly the graphic attacks that have been captured on video, have likely prompted more attention from both the community and mainstream media, Jeung said. While these attacks on elders have catalyzed calls for action, Jeung made a distinction between this particular violence, most of which has not been found to be explicitly racially motivated, and the racism those in the community have been facing due to the problematic link between the virus and Asian Americans.
And so the combination of both the racism from last year and crimes against Asian elderly are now ificant enough to get national attention. He said a confluence of factors, including the effects of poverty and financial struggle exacerbated by the pandemic, as well as opportunity, could have played into it.
Such issues have been elevated to the executive branch as President Joe Biden has addressed the issue of anti-Asian attacks. In addition to referencing the violence in his first national prime-time address Thursday night, he also ed a memorandum earlier this year that in part issued guidance on how the Justice Department should respond to the heightened of anti-Asian bias incidents.
Jeung said addressing the root cause of the violence requires more education, more expanded civil rights protections and more restorative justice models.Why Men Like Asian Women
The memorandum — which focuses on hate incidents, rather than hate crimes — allows for a more holistic approach to combating racism against Asian Americans in public streets, transit, private businesses and other settings, he said.
