This page will provide information on events related to all types of feminist issues. While this site seeks to educate on the issue of sex slavery and human trafficking, it is still important to remember that many feminist issues are interconnected. Therefore, we seek to provide information on all types of events in which issues regarding the safety and oppression of children and women are given voice.
