Bridgewater State University,


We invite you to join us in learning about and discussing the critical global issue of trafficking at the 5th World Conference on Women’s Studies. Globally, trafficking is big business and preys on poverty.  There are over 45 million slaves, trafficked for sex, forced labor and debt bondage. Sex trafficking is a growing problem across the globe endangering women and girls psychologically and physically.

 In spite of the intervention of many governments NGOs trafficking persists; however, some interventions have been successful in preventing trafficking. This panel highlights the work of a number of groups working to end the trafficking of girls globally. This panel offers you an opportunity to learn from them, exchange your own ideas and participate in dialog with women’s studies peers.  The panel features co-founder of the NGO, “Friends of Thai Daughters” Jane McBride, and others working tirelessly to disrupt the exploitation and degradation of human beings through trafficking.
