#16Days16Stories:Trafficked Women and Girls in Their Own Words

Mercy Global Action at the United Nations in partnership with the Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd presents our campaign #16Days16Stories as part of the UN sponsored 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence. Our campaign focuses on the experience of formerly trafficked women and girls who give testimony to gender discrimination and marginalization from childhood into early adulthood.
