A newly recognized form of slavery is gaining attention among activists, thought leaders and philanthropists. It is forced marriage, and it’s a problem in many parts of the world.
FTS Co-founder Kevin Bales will be discussing forced marriage and other aspects of the modern abolition movement next week at the Trust Women conference in London.
This global conference, sponsored by The Thomson Reuters Foundation and the International Herald Tribune, is about “putting the rule of law behind women’s rights.”
You can see a preview of Kevin’s presentation in this short video where he discusses: “Why Slavery is Different for Women.”
Kevin was also featured this week in a Thomson Reuters article called “Slavery Beyond the Sex Trade.”
