The oppression and exploitation of women is very much alive around the world, and Oregon is no exception. Join OWLS as we hear from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheryl WuDunn about her groundbreaking look into the tremendous impact empowering women can have both individually and globally.

 

Our panel will then explore a particularly tragic form of exploitation that is all too prevalent in Oregon: human trafficking. It is a multi-billion dollar business with implications on immigration, gender-based violence, human rights, sexual exploitation of women and children, public health, and slavery. Along with the legal aspects of these epic moral issues, OWLS hopes to move the discussion forward and help us all find ways to be part of the solution. Register online at: www.oregonwomenlawyers.org
