Contagious Justice at 210 Lonsdale St, Melbourne CBD
Wednesday, 04-Sep-2013 8:00 am
Forced into prostitution from a young age to be the breadwinners for their families, these women face a life of poverty and violence not of their choosing.
But is there a way of breaking free from this legacy of prostitution and creating a new and different life, a life of hope and freedom? Can the tradition of buying, selling and trafficking women be broken? Can we create a movement for justice that is contagious?
Join author Anne Ostby and a fantastic line-up of women as they discuss Town of Love and the important issues it addresses. This is a joint-event with The Victorian Women's Trust and Project Respect.
