Hidden in the overlapping problems of sex trafficking and forced prostitution, gender-based violence, and maternal mortality is the single most vital opportunity of our time - and women are seizing it. From Somaliland to Cambodia to Afghanistan, women's oppression is being confronted head on and real, meaningful solutions are being fashioned. Change is happening, and it's happening now.
Part I focuses on gender-based violence, sex trafficking, and education.
Part II focuses on maternal mortality, forced prostitution, and economic empowerment.
This event is open to non-HKS attendees. Please contact Amelia Mann at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
This event is co-sponsored by the HKS Women and Gender Caucus (WAG-C), the Women and Public Policy Program (WAPPP) , and the Program on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery
