UMSS Q&A – Sexual slavery and feminist politics

Sex, violence and politics – what do sexual slavery and violence against women have to do with politics as we know it? What are the links between the exploitation of the environment and women? How can a feminist analysis of violence and power shape conventional campaigns? In this upcoming UMSS Q&A on Campus, Kathleen Maltzahn will discuss these issues and more.

Kathleen Maltzahn spent five years in the Philippines, was the founding director of Project Respect, an NGO that works with women in the sex industry, and spearheaded the successful campaign that put sexual slavery on the national agenda, saw traffickers charged with slavery and stopped the mandatory deportation of trafficked women. She is currently the Greens candidate for Richmond.
