HAYVN May 2023 Book Group: Assume Nothing: A Story of Intimate Violence by Tanya Selvaratnam

Join us on Wednesday , May 10th from 5:30 – 7:00 pm to discuss Assume Nothing: A Story of Intimate Violence by Tanya Selvaratnam. We will be joined for the conversation virtually by Tanya Selvaratnam!

In Assume Nothing, award-winning filmmaker Tanya Selvaratnam bravely recounts the intimate abuse she suffered while in a relationship with former NY State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and uses reporting to examine the domestic violence crisis.

Selvaratnam details finding the strength to leave, risking her career, reputation, and safety, and how she struggled in the wake of the abuse to reclaim her voice. Assume Nothing scrutinizes the insidious way women learn to accept abuse, regardless of socio-economic status, age, gender, race, or religion. With singular sensitivity and nuance, Selvaratnam redefines what it means to be a victim of intimate violence.
