International Women's Day: lots of work to do

Yesterday was the hundredth anniversary of International Women’s Day, and the sexual exploitation of girls and women in the commercial sex trade remains a human rights crisis and a direct hindrance to women's equality.

All are invited to a presentation by Gunilla Ekberg, Internationals Women’s Human Rights Consultant, Aboriginal Women’s Action Network (AWAN) and Trisha Baptie of Formerly Exploited Voices now Educating (EVE) Thursday, March 10, 7 to 9 p.m. at the Vancouver Public Library, downtown branch, Alice Mackay Room.
