Human Trafficking Beijing +15 Lessons Learned

 March 3, 2010-Human trafficking is now an international phenomenon and a “shared global shame.”  Over the last twenty years, human trafficking has grown exponentially and has affected nearly every nation worldwide.  In addition, since the 1990s, global awareness of the international phenomenon has increased by leaps and bounds.  Today, nations understand the necessity of creating a global initiative to tackle the problem, prevent its growth and change the face of the 21st century for the better. This panel examined and analyzed the history of human trafficking and identified lessons learned from the experience of numerous countries in their fight against human trafficking.



Violence Against the Working Mother

 March 1, 2010 - Working mothers in the public sphere are under extreme pressure from society due to their varied roles as mothers, wives and professionals.  As a result of varied functions, working mothers endure many forms of violence that drastically impact their mental and reproductive health.  In addition, their diminished capacity to be fully functional affects the entire family and frustrates upward mobility.  The panelists analyzed and discussed the plight of the working mother in this regard.  In order to adequately expose the suffering of the working mother, the panel examined a case study from Morocco.  Additionally, observations from the United States were discussed, as were similarities to the treatment of widowed women.
