The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the world more than just a health crisis. There is a significant economic toll and other issues at play. One is an increase in domestic violence cases directly tied to our stay-at-home orders. Locally, the organization Women Helping Women is reporting a 30% increase in calls to its hotline.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss domestic violence under the pandemic and the challenges of reaching victims is Women Helping Women Executive Director Kristin Shrimplin.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
