An Ongoing Series of Panels on Human Trafficking

In the autumn of 2008, the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art began an ongoing series on the serious and epidemic issue of sex trafficking and child prostitution throughout the world.

Part 1: “A Global Epidemic: Human Trafficking in Your Neighborhood,” featured a discussion with Sonia Ossorio, President of the New York City chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW-NYC).

Part 2: “Sex Trafficking and the New Abolitionists,” was moderated by iconic feminist and activist Gloria Steinem, and featured a discussion with panelists Taina Bien-Aimé, Executive Director of Equality Now, and Rachel Lloyd, Executive Director of GEMS, an educational and mentoring service for young women who have been subjected to sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking.
