This week, it’s an all-Newslaundry panel as host Basant Kumar is joined by Tanishka Sodhi and Anmol Pritam. 

Tanishka this week reported on women in India being denied access to vaginal ultrasounds if they’re unmarried. She explains how doctors are hesitant to perform these vital procedures due to patriarchal notions about sexual activity among young, unmarried women.

The panel then discusses two stories by Anmol on two journalists struggling with very unique sets of circumstances. Tune in for more.
