I believe that women's human rights globally are not currently up to par with what they should be. Despite great strides made by the international women’s rights movement over many years, women and girls around the world are still married as children or trafficked into forced labor and sex slavery. I would like to be part of a community that is working toward the realization of women’s empowerment and gender equality—protecting the rights and improving the lives of women and girls on the ground.
Hi, my name is Alexis, and I met Alice a few months ago at a United Nations Association event on Human Trafficking. I am currently working on a United Nations Population Fund project in Mexico, dealing with the trafficking of indigenous women.
Great way to start 2014!! Yay WEG!!
