The couple has two sons together. In an interview with CNN, Andrew’s wife reveals that the couple’s older son Christopher Yang is on the autism spectrum. And Andrew Yang’s campaign platform includes providing adequate resources to the autistic community.
Evelyn is extremely supportive of her family as she left the job to look after her children. And as her husband is pretty occupied with his works, Evelyn Yang surely must have got her hands full.
Nothing hurts a woman’s mentality until she’s brutally mistreated, or some traumatic accident such as sexual assaults occurs in her life. Furthermore, if she does not get to take out the rage and have to suffer the trauma alone, that breaks her from within. Thus loses herself in the quest of healing the bruises in her heart.

Connecting the rant, Andrew Yang’s spouse Evelyn Yang went through the same shock and was unable to reveal her anguish, not even to her parents. Evelyn explains that a letter she received from a female-voter who claimed to confess about being a victim of such coop and took the life-altering decision helped her come out of her dark hole and let the whole world know that it is not okay to remain quiet.
Furthermore, she approached CNN in January 2020 to share her story, which she hid under layers of sadness. Andrew Yang’s partner confessed that the assault began in 2012 when she was pregnant with her first child.
Mrs. Yang found an obstetrician-gynecologist named Dr. Robert Hadden. Hadden was a person with a good reputation in his field but had extra baggage called “bad morale.”
Evelyn continues to profess that Dr. Hadden would ask her inappropriate question, completely unrelated to her health, and wanted to hear her talk about sex. Moreover, the examinations became frequent and more prolonged while, Mrs. Yang tried to replace Dr. Hadden’s identity with a perverted doctor instead of a sexual predator.
Andrew Yang’s wife says that visiting a gynecologist during pregnancy is crucial and adds a different level of anxiety and discomfort. She further recalls how things got worse in seven month’s visit. Mrs. Yang reminisces how she froze during the moments he grabbed her and “examined” her without gloves waiting for it to be over.
Shamelessly, Hadden’s attorney denied the allegations and declined CNN’s interview. She repeatedly blamed herself for a long time and regrets badly for putting up with such inappropriate behavior. She hid the dismay even from her husband and put up with everything alone.

Andrew Yang’s wife and mother of two realized that she was not alone when she found out another woman reported him for the same act. She sighed of relief, consoled herself, and confessed to her philanthropist husband.
Such cruelty to a woman who’s expecting a baby disgust and affects her mentality deeply. Therefore women who were assaulted should use their voice and speak out against the assault.

Furthermore, sexual assault is a serious matter, and when a person approaches one to shed their burden, judgemental eyes should be closed and stupid mouths should be shut.
As of now, Andrew Yang’s wife feels empowered and is determined to speak out for every vulnerable people who are shunned and shut.
Let’s hope the mother of two, Mrs. Yang remains as determined as she is today and raise her children as kind as their father.
